Beloved Baroda – Foodie’s dream

This is a repost, actually a friend sent it to me from Kenya, he got excited by the blogging stuff and sent me one… That was in October, at that time I didnt have many readers… but now that I am famous !!! I thought I should post again, so that I can ask him to join the Bloggin Bandwagon….

Bunty buddy jump in !!!!

We all often miss our college days, the days of fun and frolic… just chatted to him today morning at 3.30 while he was in Kenya at 1.30.

Strange are the ways of life… guys who used to stick together everyday, and smoke the same cigarette till the very end…

now one gets up to see a match another goes to sleep after a late night movie… almost simultaneously !

But this is not  a sad post… this is about our college days in Baroda !! the best days of life !! surely !

This comes from a friend in Kenya, Pratik … he is missing our college days in baroda like me …

 

Woh Mandvi, woh Tower, woh Baroda ka station..

Woh Mandvi, woh Tower, woh Baroda ka station..!

Woh Ellora-park jo avval tha pani-puri mein,

Woh raunak jo rehti thi Alpkapuri mein,

Woh Payal ki kachori,

woh Rumzum ki chaatein

Woh office main laake samosay thay khaatein..

Kahaan Dairy-den ka ice-cream,

kahaan Rajkamal ke khaman,

Woh Jagdish ke farsan,

woh Kalyaan ka dosa,

Woh Vishaal jo daalta tha Sandwich mein samosa,

Woh Raju ka Omlet,

woh Duliraam ke pende,

Woh halki si baarish mein Sarabhai ke bhajiye,

Kahaan jalaram ki lassi,aur woh wadi ki tam-tam..

Woh Vaccine aur Aarkee ke rangeele garbay,

Woh home-science ki maalein,

woh fine-arts ke fatkay,

Hansa mehta ke chakkar,

SD Hall ka phera,

Fatehgunj ki sadkon pe ladkon ka dera..

Na career ki chinta,

na naukri ka tension..

Yeh Passport bhi le lo..

yeh greencard bhi le lo..

Bhale chheen lo mujhse mera yeh H1..

Magar mujhko lauta do woh Baroda ka jeevan
