This blog train is brought to you by:, and would like to Thanks for introducing me and sending across the Winter Express to my station.

Across India winters are settling in, atleast in most parts of it. In some parts of the country people have already taken out their blankets, while for others the slight chill in the air in early mornings and late evenings are making them switching off their air conditioners. And here I am in Mumbai with my air conditioner on and missing my winter season. Even though I appreciate each and every season for its unique and beautiful qualities. I enjoy the changing weather, as well as the different clothes and activities that accompany each season, but somewhere I am a little biased when it comes to winters. And “yes I miss winters in Mumbai”.

It’s winter. It’s supposed to be cold outside and I miss it being cold. I keep looking at the weather app on my phone hoping for cold temperatures to be just around the corner.

The sticky heat, humidity and buckets of sweat are a year round thing for Mumbai.

Being in mumbai, I miss my winter mornings when I am all cosy in my fluffy blanket and feeling the warmth of the winter sun shining through the curtains on my window.

I miss the delight of a winter bonfire cuddling together with friends and family sharing old stories or playing silly games. It is something that takes me away from the busy urban life where everybody is falling short of time.

Winter season calls for a closet full of warm and cozy clothes. Mumbai being a city of dreams, is known for its Bollywood and fashion, but I cry a little inside every time I spot a new coat at Zara. I miss dressing up in warm sweaters or coats, colorful scarfs or mufflers paired with jackets and shopping for those fancy boots or winter caps.

Being a foodie and coming from a place known for its street food – Indore. I miss bingeing on hot crispy GADADU with a sprinkle of JIRAVAN on top. I miss the winter special delicacies like butte ka kis, and a plate full of crisp jalebi with poha for breakfast.

And specially this season I am going to miss dressing up my doll with layers of clothes and make her look like a walking marshmallow. I love how babies look super cute in their winter monkey caps and colourful sweaters with thier nose and cheek turning pink due to the chill in the air.

I might not have all these in my share this winter season but nonetheless Winter Is Here. Nonetheless every part of the country has their own way of enjoying winters. I will continue to enjoy mine as I eat vada pav with some chilled thumbs up in my cotton t shirt dreaming about temperatures dropping. How do you enjoy your winters share with me in the comments.

I hope you enjoyed reading my post. Now, it is the time for departure, so meet Winter Express next at station. Stay hooked to this journey with the Winter Express!!
