While I lived in Ahmedabad, it never felt this way. Now that I don’t live here permentantly, I’m trying to figure out how am I feeling.

In some corner of my mind, I always live in Ahmedabad.

I try to find my city in every other city. I try to know every other city the way I know my city. I try to love every other city the way I love my city. I try to test other corners of the world the way I’ve tested my city. I try to learn, sing, dance and more than anything else, I try to write in every other city the way I write in my city.

I love the trials of the wide open space that this outside world is.

But when the city laps me up inside peacefully, I don’t have to try…
