It’s been a while. I have now been in Delhi for exactly twenty days. This blog which began when I was in Bangalore in fits and starts (it took me two years almost to get to the point of writing), seems to now suffer once again from a question mark. What do I want to write about? I have been wanting to post something, for at least last ten of the twenty days but I simply couldn’t bring myself to write. The short and simple reason for this is perhaps that I feel overwhelmed. It’ll come, I am sure, but please bear with me till that happens.
I have no sewing things to show; the house is still being put in order. Living here is throwing up new things everyday, and I am realising how inept I feel in the language of the city, especially its idiom. I’ve lived in big cities before, but Delhi has this expanse which even as I imagine it feels a bit exhausting.
We had a friend for lunch last week as he said–so “you have survived the city for a week. How do you feel?” Well, a bit numb–which is perhaps why I am trying to crazily bring order to the house so some peace will prevail.
I will be back soon–I want to be back soon to this place.
