Yes, so des is calling. Yet again. It always calls only thing is I should be able to justify the visit in my head.
I was in India in Jan, then in May, my folks were here in August and I am again going home in end of October.
Once you live outside your country, one of the most common questions you face is the inevitable, “So? When will you go back to India? For good”
Well..a. few months earlier the answer would have been a prompt, ‘Tomorrow!’ but now I see myself thinking differently.
That weird longing that was almost a physical pain has subsided and also I have realised that for my own sanity trips to India are essential.
My work is here, day to day life is much simpler, you are not expected to work on weekends, travelling across the continent is easier, travelling within the country/ city is very comfortable, people are polite and generally life is more relaxed.
But India is where family is. It is just one thing, but it is the one thing that makes all the difference!
While I do not know when we will shift back to India, I am just desparately counting down days to the India trip which is when I wont be working, wont be cooking and cleaning and will just be eating, sleeping, shopping and catching up…..…….
Ahh….The pleasures of a trip to India
Will 28th of Oct please hurry up and come!
