The Much Ashamed Organic Food Exchange - A MUST READ!


OK, THIS IS A REAL EMAIL I GOT FROM A DEAR FRIEND IN MUMBAI THAT IS HELPING ME TO FIND ORGANICE FRUITS AND VEGGIES.....ENJOY!!!!

Pt I - Go to:

- Vile Parle East Station
- find Champion Store
- outside the store sits a man named "Vasaiwala" only in the evenings - he is the fresh veggies/produce seller & identified by the "banana leaves lining his baskets"


Pt II :

- around the Champion Store, find Parleshwar Temple
- Opposite and just ahead of the temple (around an open construction area), under some trees, sit: "Ashok Vasaiwala" & "Chandrakant Vasaiwala" during the mornings
- Vasai is an area north of the city apparently where these guys are growing pesticide free.

Such fabulous instructions, directions - I'm imagining this BladeRunner scenario of you in the rain soaked melee of the train station scoring these organic veggies... more valuable than spice or drugs in bombay...

AND THIS IS MY RESPONSE!!!!

I see the whole thing going down right now!! I show up in a black hoodie, posed as a muslim woman, sneaking silently into the shadows behind the trees whispering "Vasaiwala, Vasaiwala....." Slowly an indian man perches up from dimly lit corner market hiding a bag under his Doti.....looking the other way he gently glides within arms reach and as I kneel down to expose the fresh organic goodies tucked up into his wastebasket, three spotlights blare into myeyes, exposing the much ashamed ORGANIC PRODUCE EXCHANGE...I am then sentence to a LIfe in indian prison for such a vile attempt at eating clean, natural, UNCOOKED food in the Pond we call MUMBAI!!
