Homesick !

Hunger is what keeps the food chain active. The corporate world somewhat resembles the food chain, the only difference is that no one slays or eats anyone. Today it is all about survival of the wittiest, stomach is what drives the motivation and determination of a person. Why food chain? Everyone waits for a job, either someone quits his job and someone replaces him or there are new vacancies, which result in the migration of the youth.

India is among those countries which has got a huge population within the age range of twenty five to twenty eight and that group has got the power of the pen and we all are well aware of the fact that a pen is mightier than a sword. Youngsters leave their home for better job opportunities and in that process they neither get the taste of the home made food nor a glimpse of their parents for years. Yes, internet does bridge the gap but a virtual presence can never beat the warmth of a hug from one's mother.

Evolution is inevitable and so is change. This is what determines the constant migration of the youngsters irrespective of caste and gender. They frequently keep on moving to the booming industrial places or cities in India and all round the world. Adapting to the new lifestyle, the food and a completely new culture seems nothing to them, but somewhere they remember and bear in mind the memories of their hometown and as soon as they come across similar kind of people, happiness knows no limit. Soon as they leave their places, they try to be at home wherever they move to but homesickness is the only thing that hovers around. One thing that comes to their rescue is the selfish and exaggerated discussion about the native food and the mouth-watering experiences at the best food stations. 'The way to a man's heart is through his stomach', the quote says it all and this is the first thing that can overpower homesickness, being homesick despite having good food is something which one can experience in Hyderabad.  

And now the story begins...

This year has taught me a lot of things and I have discovered a lot of me and I still think that much more is still left undiscovered. ...
