Longings for Bangalore {sigh}


Longings for Bangalore


Living in a far away country
Is not a very stressful chore.
Then why do I long to go back
To my good old beloved Bangalore?

I have a lovely home here
And a husband I absolutely adore.
Yet, why do I long to go back
To my good old beloved Bangalore?

Beautiful roads, tall buildings
Restaurants and markets in galore.
Why do I still long to go back
To my good old beloved Bangalore?

Lawns, trees, hills and falls
Various hiking trails to explore.
If so, why do I long to go back
To my good old beloved Bangalore?

Not U.K, Russia or Africa
Not Brazil, Japan or Singapore
Why do I only long to go back
To my good old beloved Bangalore?

Sometimes I feel all alone.
Sometimes everything seems a bore.
Is that why I long to go back
To my good old beloved Bangalore?

Mom, Dad, and Darsh are there,
So are friends, relatives and more.
That is why I long to go back
To my good old beloved Bangalore.

Someday I will see my hometown
Someday I will fly to the Indian shore.
Someday soon I'll surely go back
To my good old beloved Bangalore.

Then I'll not feel these longings anymore...

Nicely penned !!

Take it is a passing tide. Its the vatan (those kith and kin) that becons you. Nothing un usual about that..

On a side note:

Whoa - imagine a cosmonaut at the internation space station (forgot its name) wondering about 'home' 'earth':)

Happened to read the other blog of your's on your trip to Florida/cape canaveral. Should have darted the question (about missing home) towards an cosmonaut in the 'meet-an-astronaut' program... They must be feeling really really bad (and sad) floating in air (hey, i too like it for some time not for months or years !! or having to eat that pasty/sticky oat meal with less carbohydrates or something like that) all the way out there zillions of miles away from home, isnt it?


Deeps retorted...

Sri, I'm NOT an astronaut. I'm just a simple gal missing what she loves most..


Sriram retorted...

Thats what is home-sickness is all 'bout ...


Deeps retorted...
