So today I completed exactly four months of my marriage! I moved cities (again. Another story there!) and I miss home! I miss the dinner table conversations with Maa & Deota (Dad in Assamese). I miss the green view of the park from my balcony. I miss lazing around and doing nothing on my bed! And materialistically, I miss my books and my shelf!
This is a picture of my shelf in Delhi, my home! I never had a huge shelf or even an aesthetic one! But whatever it was, it was mine! Now, I tried getting most of my books but not all. Here in my new home I have a shelf but it doesn’t have all my books! More reasons to go book shopping post lockdown!
I have moved between cities all my life, but I have always come back home, come back to Delhi after staying away for a few years. The very fact that this time its a permanent move away from my shelf, its just taking time to sync in! Leaving my bookshelf behind is tough!
