Yaar main India chala...

Finally, its time to go back home. In about 14 hours, my flight will start the journey to the place that still feels home. Its been a long wait but it all seems worth it at this moment. I am not sure what awaits me there or how it would feel going back after this long time, but this is the journey I have been waiting for...

Ok, now lets move on to the fun part. Here is a whiff of my NRI imagination gone wild...

Scenario No.1 - DDLJ ishtlye homecoming...


Girls in colorful clothes running and dancing in sarson ke khet, flying their dupattas singing "Ghar aaja pardesi, tera des bulaye re...". Some of the girls hanging in jhoolas under the tree singing, "O baaghon main jhoolon ke mausam waapis aaye re..."

Ok, there is one big flaw in this scenario, am not going to Punjab and only way Delhi girls can dance in "sarson ke khet" is if its a name of some dance club, where they won't be wearing dupattas anyways.

Scenario No. 2 - KKKG ishtyle homecoming...


My plane lands at Indira Gandhi airport. I come out wearing black overcoat running towards a waiting helicopter with a bag in my hand. My parents instead of coming to pick me up have decided to sing and dance while doing puja at my Noida palace (errr...apartment). My helicopter lands and I start running towards my home...

The biggest flaw in this scenario is the helicopter. I think it will take all my bank balance to hire one and the other obvious flaw is that there is no space to walk in Delhi forget about landing a helicopter unless malls in Noida now comes with a courtesy helipad.

Scenario No. 3 - Swades ishtyle homecoming...


The haunting music of Swades is playing in my ipod. I am sitting at the window seat of Air India...err...Air China. I have almost finished my supper. I pull back my seat, close my eyes and start imagining the first meet with family and friends. The captain comes on the speaker and informs that we will be landing on time at 1:45 am. I look outside the window and see some blinking lights. I come off the flight, try to argue with Immigration that haven't bought any new electronics, see my parents waving from outside, hug them, put the luggage in the car and leave for my home.

There is no flaw in this scenario and can imagine my homecoming already...

I am excited, anxious, happy and so much more to come home after such a long time. I can't wait to meet my family, old friends, some new friends who I haven't met in person but who are as dear to me. Let the journey begin...

PS: Happy Birthday to Anks. Your Birthday is really a lucky and happy day for me :-)

PPS: Belated Birthday to Preeti (Hyderabad waali). I hope to meet you on this trip :D

PPS: Moral of the post: Whatever the scenario, I am no less that SRK :P

I hope you would not go to Banglore otherwise there would be Aloo Paratha contest among the kuris that's too all in polka doted - from outfit to dishes and of course the shoes to tie he he he he :D.
