I am going home after two years–the longest continous time I have been away from home, despite being in the US for the last 8 years. The suitcases have been packed for the last three weeks, re-packed several times more. weighed repeatedly in a frantic attempt reduce the last 1 pound. Like all previous occassions, this time too there are a few gifts that won’t make the trip with us, our bags are already overweight.

We clutch “to-do lists” and check lists wherever we go just to be sure we are not forgetting anything. Stop the mail–check. Arrange with a friend to water plants–check and so on. From couting months to days …i am now counting in hours.

I can almost smell the sweaty air of Bombay. I am almost there…..
