Bazaar

August 19, 2019


    “Taste of streetfood is the best,” I said, only slightly savouring this insipid flavour. 

    “This doesn’t count as streetfood?” in his accent.

    “No.”

.     .    .     .

    A 24-hour flight, and taxi-ride later, the streets are alive with colors.    

    “Too colorful.” 

    Seriously?
    
    I whip around, my mind screaming in dissent. 
    
    “Shh.”
  
     Further into the bazaar, the Red Fort rises in the background. 

    .     .     .     .
   
    He grimaces at the taste of chaat. 
    
    I know we’re not meant to be.
    
    “This is all a part of me. We’re different.”
  
     With that I turn and walk away, swallowed by the chaos that is beautiful to my eyes.
