The Prithvi Theatre, Mumbai

I am at Prithvi Theatre Cafe right now. And my friend – who happens to be a regular here (and who thought I “shoud definitely come here before I leave Mumbai”) is with me and is going to share 11 reasons why this place is special:
1. The Chinese lampshades – theatrical!
2. Colourful
3. Greenery around – not totally civilized
4. Kadak Chai!
5. Random visits by Makrand Deshpande and Kay Kay Menon
6. The people who serve – they dont bug you – you can sit around for hours! 
7. This is a proper “adda” place – where you can make a lot of memories
8. On one of the tables there is actually a chess-board and ludo painted on the table! (Interrupted by Amit: “This is the COOLest coffee-table I have ever seen!)
9. Extremely informal – It IS an intellectual place – but it is “ok” if YOU’re not intellectual!
10. Peace! 🙂
11. And, of Course, the LOGo!
… Oh, And I just realized I’ve become a lot “cooler” after I got here .. Pun intended! 😉
