yunhi chala chal

i just realized how my life in new york posts have upstaged my life in dubai posts. and i just realized technically its been 9 years since i first came to US as an undergrad. ok i haven't been here for all of those 9 years, minus two years, if i really had to be precise. 7 years, still a long time. somehow it still doesn't feel like home. it just feels like i'm waiting for my next move, which i honestly don't know where it will be. perhaps san francisco, perhaps sydney, perhaps frankfurt, perhaps mumbai.

despite all that, i think perhaps ill still find my way back to dubai. something in me tells me that. only i just don't want it to be right now, coz i feel that would be my last destination. and i would be completely relunctant to move. perhaps i feel like this here since i don't stay in a city for too long, moving for undergrad, grad, work. i might end up the longest in new york but it still doesn't feel like home home. speaking to some relatives who will be naturalized in a year or so, i asked would you surrender your indian passport? without a moment's hesitation they wer elike yes, and hadn't even given any thought to it before i brought it up. i guess i envy them in a way since they have decided for themselves what is home.

As the old adage says, "Home is where the heart is." It's compromises that take us places.

My soul still strolls in the lanes of Lucknow! I'm not sure whether I would go back finally. And that's life!

so true inam, so true. sometimes i think even if i were to go back, ive changed so much and so has Dubai and i dont know if it will be the same. My parent and my aunt still live in Dubai, so so far my heart is still there.

9 years. You have been wandering quite some time.

Enjoy your travels. The man/woman who has not travelled has not lived.
