‘Turn left,’ she said.
He ignored her and went straight ahead.
‘No prooooblem. Take the left after the next signal,’ she said again. ‘Sam. I lived here. I know the route to the theater. Why don’t you listen?’
‘Nah.. this is the right road. We will get there on time,’ he said and revved up the car engine.
‘Here. Put this App on, it will tell you the directions if you don’t want to listen to me. I don’t want to get lost or miss the movie.’
‘We are not lost. And I hate that lady telling me ‘turn left’ ‘turn right’, she doesn’t even say please. Feminists,’ he shook his head.

Isolation hits you like a brick.
So, it was a good change when I had to trek in the 4 hour to and fro commute to my office. And the four hours is on a good day. Let me tell you, when one gets into a Mumbai local, you are entering a different city or country with its own rules and laws. It is the big serpent that dashes through the city throughout the day, north to south, south to north.
I start my journey from the extreme north of the city to the south and then, when the twains meet, I change to a train to take me to the north again.
