India

The lazy one wakes up again…writes a Klash entry and goes back to sleep :). Hope to be more regular this time…

The serpentine passport queue irked him. Everytime! He had outgrown it all -queues, red tapes, human errors….

Settled in the USA for over 10 years, he had changed grown and learnt to drive on the wrong side; to replace respect with informality; to share washing machines with strangers and give privacy to his kids; to understand Diwali to be a silent Sunday and send out colourful e-cards for Holi; to cheer Dhoni and gang with a ‘Refresh’ button; to forget caste and remember colour.

“Hey Harry! Howdy dude? Passport renewal totally sucks.” Jolted out of his reverie, Harinarayanan tightly clutched the small blue booklet -the final fragment of his identity connecting him to the land he belonged to.
