The trees in front of our building have grown taller than the building now and the foliage is so thick that we can barely see the Powai lake that is only about a 100m away! These trees (except the big Peepul tree) used to be only a few feet tall 22 years ago when my parents had moved in here. There is also a new playground in front of the building, which Kabu has been making the most of.
I have spent uncountable hours in my childhood looking at these mango trees from my bedroom window. Now there is a little parking shed built under them, so its no longer a good idea to aim stones at the mangoes hanging from the branches.
It is a strange feeling to walk the same lanes and by-lanes with my children now. I find myself saying the same things to them that I used to find annoying to hear from my parents : "don't jump in that puddle", "don't bend out of the balcony", "don't put your hand out of the elevator before it stops" (even the building elevator hasn't changed in the last 22 years!). However, I'm sure I'll find a lot of new changes once I start to venture out a little bit more.
