Missing..


Its been over a month now here in the US..And for all its greatness,America seems to me as a superbly boring country..Empty roads,sleepy malls..and silence all the way ..you might as well believe this is a huge empty parking lot rather than the united states of..

All the thank yous,welcomes and the courtesy bickerings seems to be taking its toll on me..No filled up transport buses blowing up the dust,not autorickshaws to have bumpy rides ending in arguments..no paan stains on the walls..no crowded theatres..no cricket,no spicy fish curries..no cow dung on the road,no elephants blocking traffic..

I guess I'm missing India, and missing it badly..
