I was born in Lahore but my family migrated to a small town Vehari, located in the southern Punjab. It was not easy adjusting in an underdeveloped town specially when you have been living in a metropolitan city. There were many hurdles. But time passed by and we got over it.
I have been living in Lahore for past five years now. This place has always felt like home. Although ironically I have not been living in my home but hostels, but this city has the sense of belonging in it. I love this place. It’s not that I don’t miss my home or my family, but I love this place.
Khair, I have met the most amazing people and yet the most unamazing people in these five years. Lekin chalo, kuch sikha k he gaye hain mujhe. Now when I look back, everything has taught me in some way or the other. It has made me stronger. It has made me hopeful. Hope to live a life that makes me happy and content with what I have and can appreciate the little little things in life which matter the most.
I am a paradox or conflicted contradiction as they say. I am always on the extremes and there’s nothing in between. Whenever somebody asks what my zodiac sign is and I answer “Scorpio”, they say “hume pata tha”. And when I ask questions like “Why?”, “How?”, they’re like “bus pata chal jata hai”. Ab yeh tou unko he pata hou. I have failed to find answer to this. 😉
