a ‘katta’ in marathi slang would mean ‘a place where people meet impromptu, sit, talk, share, idle away their time n grow up’. it continues to exist in almost every corner of Bombay. each neighborhood, college, school or even a lone building has its very own 'katta' where rich, poor, high class, low class, cease to matter n all come together. local in nature, it has a life of its own, a mood of it own, always occupied, always alive.

welcome back, december!
you have been waited for long and how!
all fingers are being crossed
fresh dreams are being dreamt
old ones are being re-moulded or a few have been discarded
surprises are being registered
sighs are being heaved
smiles are being plastered
all over my fat face!
clarity of both vision and purpose
has been seeked
and well, 'almost' reached
will be oh so glad and grateful
my darling december
if the joy and peace
i so desire and deserve now will not be
denied or ditched!
heaps of love and warm hugs,
~ your fav. child welcoming you with open arms :o)
