We were separated by playgrounds, on both side and Highway in between.

About Soma Mukherjee

I often say things that put me in a jam, Jams go well with Buttered Toasts, Toasts are great hosts, Ghosts not so much, Although they can dance, Not all dancers are serial killers, Serial killers do not use Body bags that often, body bags aren't leak proof, Proof is in the Pudding.

  1. My Dear. It is so very wonderful to hear from you. I enjoy your posts and have for years. I speak often with your mother about you and your family.
    Take care.

  2. Maiiiiiii Thanks. Love you. For coming back. We missed you terribly.

  3. I can’t believe it, our Soma is back. I have just completed ten handstands in celebration, cycled ten kilometres and stomped on an ant bed to get their attention so I could share the news with them. I remember the Darzi sitting on our front veranda in Pune stitching up a storm for us and our neighbours.

  4. Thanks for sharing this beautiful story and glad to see your blog active. It’s your USP that stands out through the drawing.

  5. A beautiful story of love for humankind – and needs repeating. Thank you for sharing.
    All good wishes,
    P/s I also posted a similar comment on your mother’s blog post.
