Welcome to the world of IM. Though we have interacted before on other threads. Saw your profile pic. Is that Angelina, or just a random pic? Nice bike, must say.

tell us more about your nostalgia, and as crv and devdutta say, make it a whole lot worse.

Welcome NI to IM - I can't even imagine how you're feeling after 4+ years - I've been back 3 and I'm still 'homestick'. This is a good place to feel even worse, but it helps with the healing process - Enjoy!!!! You'll have a lot of sympathetic ears.
Happiness is for those who cry, those who hurt, those who have searched and those who have tried. For only they can appreciate the importance of people who have touched their lives. (Anon.)

You guys make me SICK!!... with nostalgia. Especially that nasty photo gallery. It causes acute nostalgia and pain.
Those Kerala pics.. those elephants in the lake... the deer herd.. Such wildlife is almost impossible to see here in the US... well maybe in Alaska.. but thats a long way.

And the worst part is even if I manage to go to India, I wont be able to get out to see India. It'll be mostly family and relatives and food and more food and more gifts and shopping.. It gives me the jitters.

Yes, that is Angelina in my pic.. Isnt she beautiful? And she does 0-100 mph in about 4 secs. and turns like the cheetah on the hunt. Thats my Angelina.

I think this is the third or fourth thread in which the dread of "visiting relatives" eating up travel time has come up. I think family and relatives should stay together. That way we would'nt have to "visit" them all the time! What say? I am all for joint families!

Joint family... Yeah right!! And wouldnt I have to let every guy who ever wanted to ride a motorcycle, ride my Angelina. If I dont, I'm the bad brother or uncle or whatever. And the same would go for all my other toys. I'm just too possessive for that. Plus I love my freedom.

I'd say "Joint family" would be too much of a good thing. Anyway, Joint family- nukiler (George W.) family.. its a whole big debate. No point stirring that up.
Anyway, I fast-forward the visiting relatives part. I think my parents would complain the most. "You come here after 4 yrs. and now you want to visit Goa or Rajasthan or whatever!!"
