2 cities, 1 lifetime (Part I)

Bombay, London
Cutting chai, cappuccino cups 
Bun-maska, cinnamon rolls
Kande pohe, Clotted cream scones
Bombay's rain, London's snow 
Broken heart, shattered dreams 
Friends, fuck buddies
Trains, tubes
Young upstart, brown boy
Rupee's high, Pound's low
1st class, no class
Thums Up bottles, Coca Cola cans 
Mutton biryani, Balti chicken
Indian flavours, curry stinks 
Well paid, minimum wage
No, not really 
Mogra-Jasmine, African daisies
Boxer shorts, long johns 
Kolhapuri chappals, Yellow shoes
Garam chappatis, microwave meals 
Desi boy, videshi stamp
Bombay, London
2 cities, 1 lifetime
