Red Bag and Grey Poncho: Old Memories and Old Things

I have mentioned my love for grey knitwear before and I am particularly fond of this grey poncho, which I purchased many years ago, but it is one of those things that I still thoroughly enjoy wearing! The last time I carried this red bag was to a dinner with friends at a restaurant called ‘Masala Library’ in Mumbai a few years ago.  The evening was progressing fabulously well with great food and even better company and then something very interesting happened! My friend whispered in my ear and I turned around to see Sonam Kapoor, Fawad Khan and another guest being seated on a table behind us. I  then whispered to my friend on my other side and soon the entire table has stopped talking, forks in mid-air, and was attempting to look at the movie stars behind us with the subtlety of a sledge hammer! These were the days before the release of ‘Khoobsurat’ and it appeared that they had come to dinner after a promotional event, as Sonam was wearing a beautiful pink dress. How did we figure this out – well the next mornings papers featured a picture of her at a promotional event in the same dress she was wearing at the restaurant – Sherlock Holmes had nothing on us! I was reminded of that lovely evening when I pulled out this bag yesterday and it made me think that old things and old memories really are like movie stars – they shine bright and bring great happiness!  As always, thank you for reading.

  1. That is a great story! Sonam Kapoor is stunning in real life, isn’t she? I remember seeing her photos on media in that pink dress that she wore as well.
