As good a time as any
Penning this on July 18th, 2022. It is 11:17PM and I am at the same desk I used to study during my 11th and 12th. The JEE prep days and I was going through this blog in a bout of nostalgia. Words will never do justice to the pure power that this house embodies. It is like a part of consciousness always hung around here and a part of me was always missing from me when I was thousands of miles away. When I landed here on the 30th of June with Taru , Lakki and Mummy, it did not take me more than 4 days to fall back in love with Bengaluru. I could smell the welcome in the air. It is perhaps the monsoons and it is perhaps my want and need to have Tara experience my childhood (a goal I admittedly flicked from my good friend Abi) or perhaps it was just the small peek into a comfortable life in high-rise apartments that made me re-evaluate my idea of Bangalore and life in India. It was absolutely stunning to see how the dark clouds of misjudgement of my country, state and city split asunder and gushed forth rains for thought and rumination. There is no coming back from this gentlemen. The return has begun.
