Was it worth it?

http://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/

I looked around and then looked down. A tiny droplet escaped my eyes.
“You belong here”, said a voice within and I nodded to myself.

INDIA...

Its crowd... noise...
Jasmine clad hair... five yard saris...
That madness... craziness...
Unity in diversity...
People spitting and pissing on road...
A four-member family squeezed in a two-wheeler...
Honking buses...
And autos of course!

Crazy had been life in a foreign land...
Abandoning the identity, land, family and loved ones for money and professional glory...

Was it worth it?

As the breeze caressed me, I realized what I missed...
And what I wanted!
Always....!!!

  4. Dear Satya,

    I can only echo what's been said. So vivid, your story is almost three dimensional.

    shalom,
