It’s rare for a love story to be boring, least of all those that continue to play out in the heat of the Sun and the dust of the road. And irrespective of the ending, each love story is worth telling for, in its telling and retelling it relives its moment in another’s heart, in another’s eye, in another’s mind.
And everyone has at least one story to tell, including trucks like this one who told her own tale of romance on the back.
TATA Se Chali Main Kunwari,
Bhandup Main Shringar Hua,
Dahisar Main Bani Dulhaniya,
Ketakipada Main Pyar Hua.
(My journey from a TATA factory as an eligible beauty paused at Bhandup so I could be decked up to be a bride before I was married off in Dahisar and swept away to Ketkipada where I fell in love.)
Note: Bhandup and Dahisar are names of Mumbai suburbs, and Ketkipada is a locality in Dahisar (East).
