Time to Head Home

The goddess has left for her home and tonight I leave for mine. I was told that once I got married I would appreciate having a baperbari (literally, father's house) to run away to now and then, and I do. Oh yes, I certainly do. But my heart is not in it when I can't bring V with me. The Bhablet, obviously, travels with me.

And after a while, a very short while, despite all the spoiling, I long to be back in my own home. I can understand why Durga only drops in for a handful of days.

Subho bijoya, everybody, and may the joy of the season stay long in your hearts.

Mona, Parul, DotMom, Dhruva, Shobana -- Thank you.

Rohini -- I shouldn't crib, it stopped being a proper home seven years ago, when I left for Uni. Since then I've been divided in two every vacation.

Kiran -- Why can't you? A few days? A week? For Diwali? Am sure K has hols now, no?
