Last Saturday evening I was sitting at Vohuman Cafe near Jehangir Hospital. And wondering. Wondering about why the hell were the walls plastered with posters of infants, babies , little children and similar recent additions to the human race. And about why there was a dog roaming inside the cafe. And about how it was so cramped inside. And also, how the waiter possessed the most important quality of a Pune waiter. The ability to avert your eyes whenever you needed him the most.

Then the cheese omelette, butter toast, jam toast, tea and bournvita arrived on the table.

And such trivialities ceased to matter.

This post dedicated to Vohuman Cafe for making a boring evening memorable. In conclusion, I would just like to say one thing :

There are four types of people in the world :
ACP Pradyuman,
And those who have indulged at Vohuman.

p.s. - Those of you who have had the tragic privilege of my personal acquaintance over a long period would know that this type of stuff is more or less the real, authentic form of Neilgiri. Probably the 1st time I have used it on the blog. Maybe I should use it more often....... ;)
