It was a regular Sunday evening with me and my sister sipping my mother’s delicious homemade cold coffee and hurling the customary appreciations at her. Let me tell you, she is really good at it! We were intentionally making coffee froth moustaches and I was posting the funny pictures on Snapchat when my mother came in with her coffee mug and asked, ‘kothay jachhi eibar?’ (Where are we going this time?)
I diverted my full attention towards her and gave her a smirk. “Aisa coffee pilaya aapne, jahan bolenge chalenge madam!” Jokes apart, there is a traditional thing in my family. We make these happy annual trips every year and the whole point of these trips is to cover as many places we can from the map. Last year was Andamans so this year definitely had to be better than the previous one.
