an attempt to come back

I didn't know that i'd be back this early! I had assumed that these pages will go into oblivion for all time to come. And i'm not joking.

Everything about Mysooru(did i get it right?) is new to me. I'm still adjusting to the new environment. It's difficult, being homesick and all that. But, it's a part of the package, isn't it? I should get used to it in the coming days.

It's nice to have a hometown. I told this to S when i was studying at MCC. Isn't it wonderful to tell somebody that you have a native place. A place that you are familiar with, where you would long to be. I was asked to shut my mouth then, not to mouth any more rot. I understand her now. It may appear fancy on the outside. On the other hand, it's disappointing.

Excitement filled me when i alighted the bus. Sighting father, who was waiting for me. Mother's beaming face... it's lovely!

I so wanted to see B. Coincidently she's home today. I asked her to plant a nice kiss on me. She refused, the stubborn kid that she is. I told, 'Sweety, i'll buy you pani-puri.' A fantastic kiss was granted. A shower of kisses drained on me.

Bribing helps at times, you see.

Now that you have a label called "Mysooru", you will have even more people come by your blog, that's the strength of the name :)

I know what you are saying...I had same experiences when I got back from bengalooru to Mysooru.....we all have a 'home'.

Even now, nothing beats the feeling I get when I visit Mysooru.
