Over the Atlantic

As a teenager i waited in eager anticipation when my uncles and cousins from the US visited us. We  planned a week in advance the saree or SKD we would wear to receive them at the airport!!!
All that seems like a different life!
'We flew over the Pacific', 'We crossed the Atlantic' 'Took a stop-over at Hongkong' they said nonchalantly and i gaped in wonder. For the whole language seemed so strange. Conjuring up for me adventure and unpredictability.
Today I will indeed be crossing over the Atlantic in one long 15+ hour flight to reach Chicago ... on the same day! We travel west so we keep flying into yesyterday!
There are some yesterdays i would happily fly into
and some that i would fly past!!
so wish us safe journey
and happy stay.
i will bring you my frank perception of the BIG, BOLD and HAPPENING Uncle Sam.
My mind is an alarming mix of thrilled anticipation and fluttering apprehension.
O the traps of worry ... we all know its a waste of time
but ... dil to baccha hai ji, and always thoda caccha hai ji.

We'll keep thinking of you India Gate. ... And will be back soon.
