Jumping straight to the point, I am going to Mumbai. Well, on one hand it’s quite thrilling while on the other hand I am a bit apprehensive. The 22 years of my life have been spent here in
with my parents. My school was here, I went to college here. I became what I am here. And now suddenly I have to leave all this behind and start afresh. Jammu
I don’t understand what to take and what to leave behind. Every book, every shoe and every tiny little thing has a memory to it. While packing every item I feel as if I am leaving a part of me behind.
Toughest part is the thought of living away from my family and friends. I have not known life without them. Never lived away from them. Now I am not whining about the fact but it just keeps pounding at the back of my mind. I wake up at the middle of the night and realize that I would not be sleeping here a few days later. And the realization creeps the hell out of me.
Anyhow, have to go, that’s the reality and nothing can change it. So, I have to accept the fact and brace myself for living in a big city. Travelling by local trains and beware of pick-pockets. Also have to find accommodation and a roommate.
Any suggestions, tips, words of wisdom are welcome from your side. All those living in Mumbai can be a bit kinder and share useful/important details etc.
Well, that’s all. Thankyou!
