I am a mess today. After a fairly eventful long weekend spent having mostly fun with my Fab 2, you’d think I would skip, jump and happy dance my way to the next weekend which is now technically just 3 days away.
Instead, I am miserable. And moping.
Quite simply, I miss my family. A part of me wants to pack out and be with them ASAP, that’s the emotional, sentimental part of course. The one that knows no reason.
I want to banter with my siblings, not on skype or google talk or whatsapp but in real life. I want to share meals with everyone. And monsoons. And mangoes. And all other seasonal fruit.
I want to hang out in mum’s lounge room post dinner, sip on green tea and have mindless discussions on the benefits of Apple versus Samsung.
I want to stay up late with my sister way past when everyone else is asleep nibbling on whatever we can find in mum’s pantry and make fun of old bollywood films.
I want to close my eyes and just silently hear my parents talk. Soak up all that love.
Tomorrow , I will probably get over it but today I am melancholic, today, more than anything, I want to be family.
Taken at my brother’s wedding back in 2010. Its a favourite.
