homecoming.....

its one of the rarest moments of happiness in a grad student's life...:D
But today more than happiness i felt something more profound....the reason: i booked my ticket home....and from the time i booked it, the entire time when i was walking back home, i had this huge stupid grin on my face....i just couldnt help smiling with joy!!:)
going home after exactly one year....finishing my MS is something yet to be digested...this one year of MS has just swished by...if i look back...everything seems a blur now....but thats a different issue!!:D....at this moment i cant help but daydream about my being in india....getting to meet my dear mom and my sister after what seems like eons....getting to sleep in my own room(though i kinda have fallen in love with my room here too!!), all those familiar places, familiar faces...meeting friends, chatting aimlessly and for hours at our common hangouts...(though i doubt if that would be possible as all of them have gone to different places!).....
i dont know, what feeling is this...its this pure joy of going back, but still, at the back of my mind, i have this small voice saying how much im gonna miss this place...miss the university, miss my lab, miss all my friends here, miss the calm of the evening which i had come to love about troy, miss taking midnight walks on the streets with friends, miss eating at Pizza Bella(yes, i will miss that, but NOT the pizza for sure!!!) AND miss Frear Park and the associated memories:)....i wonder sometimes that happiness can never be quite 'absolute'...with it, it always brings some kind of pain.....
But yes, the thought of meeting my family again is helping me get through this week before i fly home!!!
it sure is a 'homecoming' from 'home'....

Ummm.. Frankly wait for those days!! Wait for those wonderful afternoons when you bask in the Indian Sun, when you sit and talk aimlessly, when you discuss receipes for the night, when you see the kids play on the road, when you think it might rain the evening, the sheer sebum in the pores of the skin of your face, will tell you "You are home!!"
