    Beautiful story mate. Sweet nostalgia.

    You’ve captured the frenzy, excitement, and emotion felt all across India right after the World Cup perfectly while seamlessly weaving in the story of Rajiv and Anita’s awkard romantic encounter in the city of cities, Mumbai. Dhoni’s six, the Sachin Sachin chants, and the wild celebration on the streets after a long 28 yr wait are vividly embedded in our hearts and minds forever.

    Looking forward to reading another story from you after this year’s world cup. Perhaps, Anita and Rajiv will meet up gain down under (like the Before Sunset series).
