As, the title of my blog suggests, I miss home day In and out all of it, the people, the movies and most of all the food. It is all for a bigger cause. No one ever wants to move away from the city and the Country they grew up in and live in a place which is completely alien to them. I landed in Toronto on 31st August 2016. The same night, I called my father and told him I am coming back for good as the change is very big. He said yes, come back, life is too short to have regrets.
However, something said stay back. I can surely term this as the best decision I have made ever, what happens when a person comes out of his/her comfort zone is the invisible shell which is surely present breaks and you start to mature and grow.
From then on, I haven’t looked back. I’ve just focused on what is present and have learned to live on the edge financially, managing time, the value of money, learned to make mistakes and learn from them and lastly, to accept myself for who I am, without giving any thought about what people think. The biggest thing that has happened to me is that I have learned to never take anything for granted mainly: money, family or the life and the freedom we all have been blessed with.
Now I would like to talk about how I feel whenever I go back home for a short while that is, the feeling of seeing you’re city in the dark from thousands of feet above in the air is just something else. I value everything so much more than I have ever, the traffic of Mumbai, the people, the food, and most of all my close ones. Mumbai for me is so much more than a city, it is an emotion.
