“Never did I imagine that even the whiff of the home air or the taste of home food would satisfy me as much as it is satisfying me now.
Just a few days back mom called up to tell me she is sending me some “”stuff”” from home with an aunt who will be passing Kharagpur on her way. And the elation that came upon me lasted for a day. Today I booked my tickets for going to Bombay during the 10 day Durga Pooja break and once again the entire day went on a non-alocoholic high.
Its strange how we never value what we have. And its not just about being homesick, but its about everything in general. I mean I remember cribbing about school during those golden days. And now I am referring to those as “”Golden Days””. And we often talk about it as some of the best days. The same goes with the entire junior college and engg life. I guess, like change, it is the only other law of life. Hence goes the lyric I can’t get no satisfaction.
Lost in thought and lost in time
While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted
Outside the rain fell dark and slow
While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime
I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the moment had arrived
For killing the past and coming back to life”
