Much Ado About Nothing

August 29, 2012 2 comments

A month ago, 13 people interviewed me for a position. One of the questions that they asked was “why are you interested in this job?”

“Because it will be a career-changer for me,” I explained.

That’s right – a career changer. That’s the reason why I decided to renege on my earlier decision. That’s the reason why, 2 days ago, I entered a taxi cab alone while my family bid me adieu.

33 hours and over ten thousand miles later, I disembarked in Denver. My nose wasn’t bleeding due to the altitude – probably because I am no stranger to this city. A part of her always stays with me.

When I got off the shuttle, it was drizzling and the air was brimming with the scent of the fresh rain. But I was not as happy about it as I would normally be – I had left my heart behind in Mumbai.


Deja vu

It was confirmed last week – I have to go to Denver once again. Within 3 months, I will know whether I have to come back to India for good (yet again), or if we all need to stay in the US for another 5 years or so.

I know. It’s not what we wanted – but then you can only resist so much…

So I accepted the news, kept a straight face, and came back home to another Deja vu.
