An Evening At Home


The aim was to capture the perfect sunset but what really came out in this picture is how worn my old neighbourhood is looking. But home is home.

  2. It is interesting how you still call your parents home "home" . I don't remember when I stopped or even whether I stopped completely.

  4. Bong Mom, yeah, it never struck me it was worn, you know, I always knew it to be one of the - how do you put it - better maintained? neighbourhoods.
    Sig, you know sometime during the last couple of posts, I caught myself saying 'parents' home' instead of just 'home' and felt a pang. But that was just momentary, and even then, I guess you have two homes when you live elsewhere.
    Nandita, true, your comment has gotten me thinking.

  8. i love it Sra. A typical Indian neighbourhood...and i still call my parents home my home...and when i say family...i mean rajiv, my parents, my sis and her kids...i can never seperate any of them from me. Though i have friends who think of their husband and kids as their family...parents and siblings..as parents and siblings..hope i am making some sense here ;)

  9. Love it!

    Tell me about the home thing... I can't yet call Sachin's parents' home in Hyd home... but where we live in GGN is home, my parents' place in Madras is home (not for very long) and my apartment in BLR is also home...
