Back in Indes

Its ages since I have blogged. I am back in India, not on vacation this time but to
live, and as I go about making arrangements - housing, transportation etc., I wonder if I should write a cultural reorientation piece for the returning NRIs - Hit 0 in the lift when you want to go to the ground floor, try and find the method behind the madness called traffic if you have any aspirations to drive, remember the days when you caught a bus - thats what those hundreds of people on the sidewalk facing the same direction are doing, nothing untoward has happened.

Another interesting aspect is people often start off with the economic condition and tell you how their relative so and so is still in the US, as though they could not, would not believe that someone out of their free will would come back.
