Why I love going home

  • You get to hear the sound of mom's voice from the very first second of your morning... imagine not being forced to wake up to a wailing alarm clock and hear your mom calling you instead.
  • You don't have to cook, clean or do the laundry.
  • Warm, fresh chapatis appear magically on your plate during meals, refills and second helpings come unasked for.
  • People will always find that you've thinned and take up the challenge to stuff you enough for the next six months.
  • You clothes get magically selected for washing, cleaned, dried, neatly folded and ironed if necessary, and then they appear in the closet.
  • You don't need to worry over what will be cooked, and whether it will be available on time.
  • People actually bother to come and tell you to come and eat breakfast.
  • In fact, they will even drag you to have your food.
  • You get to haggle over the price of vegetables in the market, mentally calculating how much you saved when you bring down the price of a cabbage from 0.2 $ to $0.1 .
  • You can tell everyone any story about Umreeka and they'll believe it, including flying cars and loose women ;)
  • Finally, you love the looks on the kids' faces (a mixture of awe and disgust) when their parents introduce you and tell them, "See, you must become 'great' like that!"

  7. Why do I have a feeling that most of these initial things you mentioned can be taken care of by domestic help? Come on, you need a family for better reasons than feeding you and washing your clothes.

  8. Lavender, ahh, unfortunately a trip back home from now costs $1600 or more :((. Most importantly, I was just imagining... I'm not going home just yet!! :(((((

    Alpine Path, not going hommeeeee :((((((

    Pallavi, of course! Thats the added bonus.

    Sky, yeah as usual you forgot to sign off. I do need my family for 'other' reasons... these are just perks! :D

  9. Oops...that comment attributed to me wasn't made by me! I was too busy having a good time in 6 flags to read this one ;p
    Anyways, kind of agree with that comment...I think the best thing about going home would be lots of hugs and the smell of home...I don't think anywhere else can have that smell or that feel :)

    Sky

    PS now i guess i will be more careful about signing off with my name ;)

  12. The real Sky, okay, so I mistook the other one for you. But, since you agree with him (her?), my answer still holds. And about what you mentioned as reasons, well... senti nahi karne ka!!

    Janum, "poor sky"!! ... bloohahahha.... thanks a lot! Not going home, dear... just that I have a very active imagination.

    Wendy, yeah there's always a tradeoff. BTW, Welcome onboard!
