The Act of Letting Go/ 2/ 16 years of my existence in Pune and I have these nine boxes to show for it — nearly 2,000 DVDs, some 50 books, reams of handwritten papers containing gibberish, 15 caps and some items of clothing. Enough to last a lifetime. As I carry them to Delhi, five years after shifting base, what saddens me is the fact that I have finally severed my connection to the City of Blessed. Now there is nothing for me return. I am forced a rebirth and it’s not pleasant.
