5 April, 2015- Bombay.
(I prefer Bombay to Mumbai, somehow)
While I’m at some 36,000 ft up in the air, I have random thoughts in my head pacing 100 km/second, the lump in my throat too huge to swallow, & the weird turbulence in my stomach just refuses to stop.
I’ve left my home; and I’m just about to step in a completely new phase of my life.
WEIRD & BLAH!
Ever since I’ve made the decision of moving away from Delhi- from my people and the place I call home; I’ve been facing a lot of whys & yays.
The answer to the “Why Bombay?” one is pretty simple. Reset was needed. Reset was demanded. Reset is happening.
But the honest reaction to the “Yay Bombay!!”, is a mixed emotion of 80% sadness & 20% happiness.
I honestly don’t know how am I gonna live through the night knowing my little one isn’t next to me. I honestly don’t know how am I going to fight everyday with mom on Skype. I don’t know how easy is it going to be to get my reasonings & logics & answers with dad on a call. I don’t know how am I going to have my gossip evening coffee or spend the night drinking, without my bunch of people.
I. DON’T. KNOW!
But. Despite all this, I am eagerly looking forward to “my own time”. Explore the new city to find my own self. I think I’m just going to distract myself with all the adventure & challenges that await me.
Here’s to a new city, new set of people, lot of travel, lot of humidity, & cats and dogs of rain.
To new “happy” beginnings.
