Displaced!

So here I am, far away from home, watching the raindrops falling on the windowpane. It's a beautiful morning, cool breeze blowing, but all I can think of is going home!

I miss the noisy people, the winding streets, the blazing sun, the crowded roads, the pollution, the grime, the dirt, the tan. I miss the unhealthy oily food, I miss binging like there's no tomorrow! (Kerala food is very eekily healthy!!!!Pah!) I miss the crying about my tan and my floater straps leaving their mark on my feet! I miss cribbing about the crowd on the metro! I miss wanting to stay in my room because it's too hot outside! Golgappas, cholebhature, momos, tandoori chicken, kebabs, shawarma, jalebis, samosas, dhokla, Kurkure, butter naan, cheesy gooey pizzas, KFC!!!!! I miss it all! No matter how many replicas I find here, it's never as good! :(

Most of all I miss home...Home is where the heart is, and my heart is in Delhi...and that's where I wanna be!

Either I am an idiot or I'm just being the same Mad Minstrel!

P.S- booooohooooooo..... :'( and a whole lot more boohooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

they say.....relationship deepens and strengthens by separation (not very long) tried and tested.....don't worry, you'll be fine....try not to think about the distance, think about the moment, the feeling you're gonna have the day you arrive! even in the flight, I bet you can't hold back the smile, thinking about your union! and as you set your foot in your "home", Bryan Adams welcomes you with his song playing in your head "Here I am....." :D
