Exactly a week ago, I got the surprise of my life. Let’s just say there were some wonderful people, biriyani and a ring involved 😉
At midnight, as my 24th birthday rolled in, I found myself sitting in the bleak office of Seabird Travels with G waiting for the bus to Goa to arrive. I spent part of my birthday on the beach, book in one hand, beer in the other and sand under my feet. The sea, as always, felt familiar — like a warm hug.
I missed you, Papa. The waves reminded me of how happy Goa used to make you. But as I make new memories, your silly grin will stay with me.
