in my dream last night i came to the edge of a shore where a dust road disappeared into mangroves. the whole road was flooded with brown slimy water and it suddenly dropped away as i swam across to find out what happens on the other side. there i found the hulking white mass of the oberoi mall that rose above me. i could not swim to the other side though and i pulled out my camera to document this rare view of the building from the other side- thinking ‘i should blog this’i turned back afterwards and found the same slimy road leading into a cloud of dust. as i walked the brown slime lapped against my feet for a long time, the dark green mangroves on both sides.
