Day 3 = Today - Maha shivratri in India. So at around 6 pm, johannesburg time, we went out to a hunt for a Temple. Finally with the help of GPS (Does that mean a God Positioning System?) we were able to find God in Johannesburg. It is called Melrose Temple. And i couldnt believe it. Atleast 100 cars were parked on the roads leading to the temple. Each human you could spot was an Indian. Although most of them were south Indian. Hw do i know? First, their moustache, second i can understand few words of telgu :) It was an amazing experience. Although i am not so religious types, but these little things help me to connect with my world out there in India. 

Day 2 = Yesterday - We went to Fordsburg. It is an Indian dominated area. There is a small market called Fordsburg Square. It is a mini palika bazaar in Johannesburg. Every(Indian)thing you can imagine is available here in cheapest prices. Hindi movies, hindi songs, Parachute hair oil, Dabur amla kesh tel, chawanprash, and even saree clad females!  I had 2 of my fav things in the world. Chai and then Paan. Yeah after living 4 years in Banaras, i love paan and chai so much, much more than how mihir loved tulsi! BTW here they sell DVDs of all K serials and Award shows! So that you dont miss anything!

Day 1 = day before yesterday - Delhi6 - Yeah i paid 300Rs (after conversion) for ticket and drove some 20kms to watch this movie. Why? Its title had Delhi in it, so even by rakhi sawant IQ standards you can guess that they will show saddi dilli for atleast 10 mins. I dont care how the movie was, i just loved those old roads, green yello autos, clumsy roads. cows walking, phew! I miss those traffic jams, those polluted roads, hindi mein gaaliyan, weekend pe ghoomna, everything!
