Its that time of the year... When Delhi becomes more of the big bad city than it is thought to be for the rest of the year. The sky rocketing pollution levels have a physical and psychological impact on most of us living here is escalating every year.
So what do I do? Escape of course. And what an escape it was...being surrounded by verdant green countryside. I was so, so excited.. so instead of bouncing off the 'walls' there, I decided to explore every minute patch of the 80 acre farm I was on. Which got me picking my own veges for lunch and dinner and climbing trees for my daily fruit fix. Does it get any better than that? Hmm! Yes, it did... I discovered a large bio pool surrounded by lush greenery. Needless to say, a considerable amount of my stay was spent there.
Sitting at my desk at my office in Delhi now, I'm clearer. That even though Delhi is what has given me my family and largely shaped me into who I am today, the time is come to say good bye. Its time to dip into the non-existent retirement fund :). Its time to move on to the slower pace of life I've always dreamed of living. Its going to take some time, but that's where I'm going.
