I Left Delhi like a Thief in the Night…

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I’ve watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Blade Runner

 

I am ending my journey to India with the quote from my all time favorite movie Blade Runner. Although there seems to be little or no connection between the sci-fi world of neon signs, constant rain and noir atmosphere of the movie and the New Delhi as I’ve lived it, I can draw comparison between the search for the essence of humanity of protagonists in the movie and myself at this moment of life.

I left Delhi like a thief in the night, packed my luggage and called taxi at 3 in the morning. Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse and the drive to the airport seemed like a surreal drive in some of the Lynch’s movies; empty road, tunnel of light in front of me and the traffic signs rushing past in a blur. Sitting in silence I was waiting the whole time that some dues ex machina stops the car, stops the signs rushing by, stops the time. Nothing happened.

My brother greeted me with one of his crazy metaphors; I’ve just crossed the wormhole, defined the laws of universe and traveled through space and time. I’ve come from a galaxy far, far away and landed back home, leaving alien planet and strange culture behind. I agreed with him to a certain point, the 12 hours travel seemed like a quantum leap, I truly did cross the boundaries of space and time, but the home did not feel as home and the alien planet left behind did not feel alien. It seemed as that I’ve paid the price of playing with the rules of universe and while going inside the portal on one side and coming out on the other, something changed inside and up was down and down was up. I felt lost at home.

I was waiting for something like this to happen. I truly felt at home in New Delhi and for a moment there I didn’t know anything else. My home back home was a distant dream, something somewhere. My ETASHA family and work were my life, I was happy.

Dogs are sleeping in front of the office; I’m coming down the stairs, Ganesha stares at me from above the doors…

The smell of the office, Suresh greets me and tries to teach me Hindi…

People, so many faces, so many laughs, so many stories…

I am blessed by the presence of so many soul mates…

Day by day my coming back seems more and more real, I am starting to get used to life back home, the atoms in my body are rearranging back to their old patterns, but in the back of my mind I can feel that It will not be the same, they will never find the old me, not 100%. I know moments will be lost in time like tears in rain, but at the same time I know that I will never forget my experience and especially the people I’ve met. I believe our paths have crossed before and will cross again in the future, be it in this life or some future lives. Thank you for the chance of meeting you all again…
