So I've shifted.
To Bangalore, to a product company.
Yes, me and my wife. My parents are in Pune.
Yes, we've found a flat to stay in.
Yes, we like the city so far.
Oh yes, it is expensive, but there are small shops where you get affordable stuff, if you look.
Yep, I have some friends and relatives here.
No, I don't know how long I'll stay here.
Just a minute, let me put another rupee coin in.
Well, I expect to make a simple life here for myself. Naive hope, I know. I want to make time for reading and writing and exercise and talking and relaxing and generally feeling like I know where my life is headed.
Yeah? Ha ha ha, I know, that last one was a bit much.
All right then, I'll hang up. Be seeing you sometime.
Gotta go, there's some sort of dust in my eye. Probably a crumb from a Shrewsbury biscuit.
