Nearly every year, I'm usually with my entire joint family for nearly the entire half of the ten day Onam celebrations. But this year, since I'm in mourning, I hadn't thought much about going home and by the time I had gotten back from the US, it was too late to do anything. Thankfully, the office has a significant enough malayalee population to actually make a good friday out of it.
Kudos to all the folks who did all the fantastic floral work ... makes me feel right at home here :)--
The worst feeling in the world is the homesickness that comes over a man occasionally when he is at home.
