the home coming...

the first step on the city's tarmac and i knew i was home...
i knew that beyond that wall,everyone speaks my language...
i knew that the faces which will greet me will have smiles...
i knew the taxis would be yellow ambassadors instead of those black and yellow monsters back there...
i knew phuchka will be called "phuchka" and not "golgappa"...
i knew "adda" will no more just another "bong" word uttered by those who come from "cal"...
i knew i would be sleeping on my bed...after what seems like an eternity...
its crazy how you take things for granted...
your bed,your room...and even your WC...this is when you realise their worth!
i am back...to where i belong...
and yes,hong kong restaurant got a new banner :)...
and lords' is all done up with airtel ads!

It is refreshing indeed to go back to the familiar, no? Especially when you never thought it would feel that good.
