2009 is very special for several reasons. I am independent, the definition here complies with Indian way, very specifically South Indian way of life, is a foremost reason. Not that I wouldn’t call up my father before deciding something, but it is just that I can be for him and my mom. Not that I have never been there for them but this is different.
One of my very close friend calls me a racist, when I use this word South India. I am not a racist or something. It is just that I am proud South-Indian. I enjoy the shirt& dhothi, eating on a banana leaf and carnatic music. I would be glad if I could use a more wholesome word “Indian”, like an Irish saying,”I am an Irish”, but for the complication which we address as Unity in Diversity. We are diverse and I have no regrets. Rather proud to be a part of this beautiful country, where we value and respect emotions & lives much more than any other nation.
Life is beautiful.
