Journey Back

Dubai International Airport

            Reached Dubai via Tunis, along with a fellow Indian who is

            working in Misuraata.


           “I go to work and then stay in my house. I am away from my

            family so what difference does it make whether I live in a remote

            place or in the capital,” he said. “In fact in the remote place, there

            are no distractions, the company takes care of you more and you

            end up saving some more money.”


            Dubai-Remembering the previous times I have been to Dubai.

            Here, you see the working people on the move, internationally.

            New fountains and interior landscaping.

            People buying liquor and gifts. I watched on. The Gita was

            there to turn through.


            Bombay-Mamta was waiting for me. The children were happy

            In Malad. They have grown taller and more sensitive.

            “Papa, now stay with us here. No need to go back” was the

            sentiment I heard many times in different ways.
