Things I will miss and won't

As I prepare to leave India, I can't help but jot down things which I will and will not miss in Abu Dhabi

Things I will miss for sure:
  • Having someone who cares for you and whom you want to care for, near you and reachable all the time
  • Watching cricket matches live at Kotla and Wankhede
  • Homemade kheer, halwa and rajmachawal
  • Gossiping with college friends about college friends
  • Standing up for the national anthem before movies in cinemas
  • Comparing Delhi with Bombay and concluding that both are cooler than Chennai and Calcutta combined
Things I will not miss for sure:
  • Crazy noisy traffic in Delhi, Bombay, Chennai and for that matter every bloody road
  • Sad bureaucracy (read corruption) in every aspect of life
  • Sick mentality of Indian men to overpower Indian women by hook or by crook
  • Stupid family values which make children hide things from their own parents
  • Even more stupid family values which make sure you are surrounded by relaitves when you want to be alone
  • Friends who show care but don't really care about your existence
  • People looking at you after you have told them you are from IIT as if you told them you are from ET

I also just wrote about the ET part, It's a big relief when people just treat you as a young dude with an engineering degree from India, and the rest is just plain you.

Agree about the Indian mentality part

It can only be you who writes in things I will miss: GOSSIPING!
