From my Creative Writing Archives:
Here is a light-hearted Soft Boiled Detective StoryI wrote many many years ago, in the 1970s, during my Mumbai days. I titled the detective fiction story TIME INCLINATION OPPORTUNITY.
Old timers in Mumbai will surely remember the inimitable Cafe Naaz on Malabar Hill overlooking Marine Drive.
Cafe Naaz was one my favourite hangouts during my early Mumbai days.
Sadly,Cafe Naaz disappeared many years ago, but memories remain.
“Well we look for three things.”
