MY HANDSOME NEW LOVE…SHAMIANA

I fell in love with Shamiana,  the colorful rockstar, and I vividly remember that evening. It was my very first day in  romantic rainy, beautiful Bombay, 14th July 1974. And on that day itself, Shamiana was the very first restaurant I dined in.  Having majored in Literature honors in Delhi university, I had come to Bombay to study journalism and train under Patanjali Sethi in The Times of India. I ate at Shamiana regularly. I returned to Delhi. Only to come back in 1980 ( as Income tax commissioner) and once again thanks to my mother in law Mohini Bhullar, editorial director of the only city magazine, sipped and supped here regularly.. Celebrated many a sentimental occasion here. From 2000 onwards, moaned and criticized  it’s decor and food and relocating to the pool side location. But now, Shamiana  is back to where my love affair started….and  I am rejoicing!
