The Man With A Lost Origin

silhoutte.jpg

In India, there is a typical tradition to ask people their place of origin when we meet.

Where is your native place?

Everyone has a origin within the country but I am a odd one out. I don’t have an origin in India; all the past glory is lost. Sometimes, I feel like no man’s land.

My ancestors were born in in Chiniot which is now in Pakistan after the great f***ing partition of India in 1947. After the partition, my father migrated from Lahore to Delhi and eventually Mumbai.

I was born and brought up in Mumbai but don’t have a native place, at least here in India.

Thank you very much!
