Going HOME!

All the Internationals in house…make some noise!

Staying away from home, for a straight year or even a semester for that matter can take its toll on a students life.

I just got back home to India yesterday and couldn’t believe how much had stayed the same and how much has changed. Not just in terms of physical infrastructure but also how the culture is being enriched as well as deprived at the same time. How my city has evolved into being a concrete jungle, how the schools are increasingly rising education standards, how my own family has been uplifted due to the progresses made…all these little things add up and can cause quite the amount of anxiety for a student returning home.

Just how one may think, going, settling in a new country could put one in a state of shock or a cultural blow; similarly, coming back to one’s homeland after a while and not completely being aware of the same could get difficult. Although, due to my frequent visits to India and regular, close contact with family on a daily basis, I was able to eliminate a lot of the shock stigma and let reality sink in.

For me, food proceeded by family remains the focus. I have missed tasting familiar, home-cooked, ‘made-by-my-very-own-mom’ flavor on my tongue for too long it seems. The love a mother pours in cooking food when her baby human is coming home after a long while just makes life seem perfect!
