Reminders of India
My parents called me last night from India, where they will be staying for a few weeks, and I spoke to one of my uncles for the first time in years. He greeted me in his Yoda-like English by asking, "From where are you speaking?" This quirk had completely slipped my mind, and hearing that question made me both miss him and realize how out of touch I've been since I last visited. Then I finally watched the wonderful Apur Sansar, a great end to the Apu trilogy. It had lots of familiar details of day-to-day life in India that also jogged my memories of previous visits. Hopefully I'll be able to make time next summer for a trip to see what else I've forgotten.
