This was the 47th post (Day 47) of an entire year-long series, which I named ‘Project 365′. The idea was simple enough: travel for a full year and document every day of it, in the form of a daily picture and poem. I am still working on a book of this year-long travel, but till then, enjoy all the posts here. You can check out the daily posts in the details below or jump to the final day of the project by clicking here.
17th August 2014 – Mumbai, India
Two little kittens, small, minuscule and screeching for attention Yin and yang. Like the riff notes of an unfinished melody. With the train behind me, and the rains ahead of me. I joined them too. Now there are three of us in this lazy city.
The long train ride yesterday (along with the fact that I met some junkies on the train who helped to get a little high), had left me helluva lot tired, as I crashed like a meteor on Shipra’s couch. Shipra is my CS host in Mumbai, who has the longest/biggest/baddest couch that I have ever come across. And plenty of plants to go next to them. Even a San Pedro’s cactus, which I am told by Michael Cera is an awesome hallucinogen which I have to try at some point of my life.
And 2 of the cutest kittens that I have ever seen.
Shipra is a member of this Mumbai-based animal welfare association called ‘World for all’, and she temporarily adopts little kittens and grooms them until they have a permanent buyer. It’s a tough process, as I found out. The kitten are just days old, and they have to be taught everything. How to feed themselves, how to pee and poop, among other things.
And that lack of knowledge, makes them so adorable.
