It was Diwali time. Noise, family, celebrations, food and more food conversations from India just got me blue. Ansul and I couldn’t make that planned Diwali travel to India due to the pandemic. This led to musings penned below. Yet, we had a humble Diwali here in Chicago, and I am all hopeful for cutting the 8431 miles to India soon.
Please feel free to share your thoughts, suggestions, comments below. Happy Diwali 🙂
Far far far away
Like really far away
They started like this in childhood tales.
Little could I map the distance then
Just minutes away – family or friend.
The world evolved – with travel, tech and time
Yet the distance didn’t dissolve – still at 8431 miles
Bridge it my friend, Bridge it brick by brick
With a little bit of love, and a little more of faith
Easier still – the conventional way
Pick that phone, and say what you couldn’t say
In thoughts, yet so far
I wish I could say – just hop in that damn car
so Far Far Far away
See you for a Summer of May
Thank you for reading, Aditi
