The last week was amongst the best that I have had in the recent times while I am here in Kolkata... Couple of f from IIML had come to the city. So we decided to do a get together at one of the friend's home. Gagan played the role of a gracious and graceful host perfect to the last letter. The bakar session pre- and post- Soup-Dinner-Mishti was enjoyable.
Then two days later, we people again met on a Saturday for a quick get together before Kapil leaves for mumbai. We watched an entirely forgettable movie, which we nonetheless enjoyed because of the company that we had. After the movie we had a nice group dinner in the food court after which it was decided that all that was needed to top off this enjoyable evening was a cuppa tea at a tea wala at "Gurudwara" (I hope I got that right). I didnt go for that but I am informed by my truthful contact that it was another enjoyable experience with bakar on one and all topics; especially some rather favorites of discussion at IIML. Nothing more needs to be said after that. I am, ofcourse, sorry that I could not join that session and jealous at having missed all that.
On sunday, had lunch with another friend from IIML, Kuchi Ravi, who has recently been married and posted to Kolkata from Hyd. He and his wife (Pra)Dipti were a good host and it was another very well enjoyed day. She had prepared a number of dishes and we ate them in South Indian Style. Oh and I forgot Gaurav Mukherjee also came for lunch... So all in all we had fun.
