I visited my Chitthi (aunt) in Mumbai recently. These are some of my experiences there. By Lavanya Iyer
Our home Gurgaon to Vasai Station (Mumbai) – “The boy on the train”
We came to the railway station and sat in the train which travelled across many stations. In the train there was a family with a small child. We played with him. We also gave him one of our toys. He took the toy.
Day 1: Chitthi’s House to Seashore-“My friend Ansh”
Finally we reached Vasai. I played with my cousin Ansh. The next day, we went to the beach. There I played in the water and ran with Ansh. We had fun in the water and on the beach.
Day 2 : Chitthi’s House to Church – “Curious me!”
We decided to go to the church. We saw many shops on the way. At last we arrived. We also saw a graveyard in the Church. I was very curious. It was fun in the church.
Day 3 : Chitthi’s House to Post office to collect TAHD book – “the budgie, the fish, the tortoise”
Next day we went to the post office and collected a book. On the way we saw a budgie shop. We also went to a temple. It had a pond with fish and tortoise. We had a lot of fun.
Day 4 : Chitthi’s House to a pond and temple : “my aquatic playmates”
Next day we went to a Talav (pond) and a temple. There was a Lord Hanuman statue there and the pond had fishes. It was fun to play with the fishes.
Day 5 : Chitthi’s House to Dattani Mall : “Malls are fun”
Next day we went to Dattani Mall. There were games and a children’s play area. We played games and that was fun.
