Big B of Bandra

Clearly, it was a matter of time, before Bozo, Mumbai's blogging dog, gave in to starry influences. And Magiceye caught him in a pensive moment.....   (Psst. Magiceye away with his favourite heroine amidst strawberry fields in Panchgani.  Well, Bozo understands. Some folks must stay in Bandra, and learn to shoo the birds in the balcony.)

Not for him, the dhishoom dhishoom action and baring of teeth amidst abuses. Not for him, the soulful singing in balconies, looking at half full tumblers.

But he aims to emulate the best.   So he is growing a beard.   It's just that unlike the original Big B (of Juhu),  Bozo's hair and beard  display the same color...

The same
brooding eyes,
the same
baritone bark,
rugged lined face
hiding a soft heart,
respectful escorting of
family elders
amidst pining for those far away.

The only thing missing
was the french beard
and he is slowly
getting there....

The Big B of Bandra !

Cornering Thoughts......

Mumbai' blogger Dog Bozo, now back after a short hiatus. The city weather now is a great combination of cool mornings and hot days, and he makes the most of it.

For a while , he worried because a certain wild two wheeler seemed to be monopolizing Magiceye, traipsing all over the peninsula with him.  But the time was well spent by him, ruminating on life, and this is what settles it all .....

It must be
such a boring life
to sit endlessly
amidst diesel fragrances
and hefty four wheelers,
and then
act all thrilled
because someone
spent so many days
travelling south
exclusively with you.

Me ?
I am more balanced .

It is all about
going for leisurely walks
with different folks,
coming back
to fragrances
from a kitchen,
licking up happiness,
listening to music
and then
settling down
to a dream nap
in different places,
where I am amongst
family and friends.

Now that summer beckons,
Cool na ?

I hope the Desert Storme
is listening.
