the first week back after india has been a long and a difficult one. the longing to see the folks and brothers has been enormous. i am not a very emotional guy when it comes to family. however the thought that i may not see these ppl for some time - my own people - my family. i have spent 21 years with them. not just parents: uncles, aunts, cousins, grandparents, brother.
like suri told me: friends are family you choose.
here are family you can choose.
if i had to choose a family, i will choose these people over and over again. the fallacies and the quirks are the things that make me love them more than ever.
the thought of seriously shifting back after a couple of years here is more serious now than ever. sure, you must be htinking, so says everyone else. i wonder if this is the time they say that.i think i seem to be coping with this worser than anyone else. though everyone must be feeling it inside.like me. like amarnath.
the sights and smells of india are intoxicating. as american as i can get in thinking , i am indian by birth and by right. i do not want to loose that right, feeling or that mentality. i dont give a damn if you care or not that i am an INDIAN.
