The Memory Remains!

I was sitting at my desk, seething mad at the code that compiles but refuses to run and generally angry at the whole world. Then the guy sitting next to me, opened a book that was on his shelf for ages. The old book smell. I was immediately transported back to Easwari Lending Library - looking for Enid Blyton books. Especially the last book in the Malory Towers series that I never seemed to find. Trying to finish some small book before Amma had picked out hers! Secretly trying to sneak in a couple more books than my allotted limit. Where did that little girl go? I miss Chennai. The fastest cars in the world and the tastiest Italian food cannot fill the void in my heart that yearns for Madras!

The last 3+ years since I've known you, you've been out of Chennai.
I guess if you at some point in time were to live in Chennai, you would find that you miss Chennai-you-lived in Chennai.
