ONE LAST TIME


Was just thinking yesterday - America is such a great place to live in! Clean surroundings, vast spaces, so many fun things to do, great shopping outlets, restaurants, roads that actually make me want to drive cars - what a drastic difference in the standard of living! Unlike many people I know who miss India like crazy when they're here, I thought I was doing quite well... until now.

Just got news that my paternal grandmother passed away a few hours ago back in India. Numb mind frantically trying to cope with the thought that I will not be able to see her one last time. Because I am here, in America.

What am I giving up? What am I getting? The familiar tongue of death licking all over my neck trying to make me vomit everything that I thought I had chewed, swallowed, and digested about losing the ones I love...

Thats when you really feel you should be here with your family, I can understand, but there are your priorities and you have chosen them. So i'm sure you have no regrets.

As far as the US goes, never liked being there, maybe Chennai is unclean, not much pizzazz here but Chennai is and always will be home.
