Some people leave their hearts in San Francisco, but I think a part of mine will always be in Mumbai. Fact: did you know that your taste receptors actually make you taste differently once you know what you are tasting? (Blind vs. non-blind)- up to 20% different. That’s a lot of difference. I feel like that’s what Mumbai is for me. My blind vs. not blind test. There’s so much history here, good history I mean, that it’s always going to make me happy, every time I come here. No matter what ish is going on in life, or how crazy work is or whatever really.
In some ways I feel like I am witnessing the genesis of a new order, of a new world where the youth of today are giving the finger to the craziness of generations past and are re-creating what it means to really live. And I get to be a part of it. The technological melting pot of societal backwardness mixed with the hope that only people with notions of a bright future can muster.
When I say that the future is going to be wonderful, people think I’m crazy. But maybe, it’s not so crazy. Maybe it’s just going to be a reimagined future that nobody really understands, but we are all, either consciously or subconsciously, working towards.
Maybe it’s just our generations collectively conscious freudian slip for the betterment of humanity.
