Roadside Binge

It was a long day filled with project presentations and various events. I and my college mates were all very tired and needed something to refresh ourselves. To cool ourselves down we decided to have Gola at Khau-galli, Ghatkopar. Since my college was just 5-7min walk from Khau Galli, we reached the place In no time just to find it shut. They open the shop late in the evening. Since the Gola-wala hadn’t opened yet, we thought of going for MASALA THUMB’s UP at Yadav’s instead.
We all had a great time getting nostalgic about the days we spent together as a council over a glass of Masala Thumb’s Up. I was a part of the Computer Society of India Chapter of my engineering college. For some of us, masala thumbs up is our alcohol. We love it too much. There’s something about Thumb’s Up that stimulates your senses, gives us a kick. Whatever it is, we love it.
After a while of chit-chatting we left the place. Some of us dispersed while some of us wanted to hang out for some more time. The only question was where next could we go. While we all were thinking of a place to hang out it struck me, MUNG BHAJJI at chembur!! Everyone agreed and we headed to Nandu’s wada-pav  center in Chembur opposite to Chembur post office.
This place serves the best mung bhajji I’ve ever tasted apart from the usual wada-pav and bhajji-pav. I remember my Dad bringing me here when I was a kid. So we parked our cars on the opposite side of the stall, sat on the bonnet and relished the taste of those delicious bhajjis. The mung bhajji were crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. The best part about it is the dry chutney served with it. This chutney simply enhances the taste.
We had our usual college talks, cracked jokes, pulled each other’s legs and made all sorts of future plans. Before we realized it was already 2 hrs since we got there. We had super fun over few mung bhajjis and a cutting chai. It was nearing our dinner time so we forcibly had to depart.
We had a lovely time together. My final college days, I’m gonna miss these days, miss my buddies, miss every moment we spent together. We all will cherish these small memories together.

P. S. We were too hungry to wait for a couple of seconds to take a picture. So you’ll have to excuse me for not posting a picture. But next time I’m there I’ll make sure to click a pic first.
