"A" is for "Appu Ghar"
Visits to Appu Ghar were such a fun part of my childhood ! You caught the mood right - the anticipation, fun and later the inevitable wistful comparison with Essel World. My nemesis was the Columbus ride - you remember that ? Big ship moving in a pendulum motion. Loved reading this nostalgic piece. Look forward the next 25 !
So well written, as always. Do give podcasting a try, it is fun and easy and there are so many apps that allow you to experiment. Folks like me are waiting with unopened popcorn packets.
