– is exactly how I am feeling right now…
I dialed the familiar number again. It said ‘Then number you are dialing is out of service.” And it broke my heart.
The telephone line has finally been disconnected.
And this is just the beginning of cutting off the ties.
My parents are shifting from Solan to Bangalore. As much as this brings joy to my heart, it is very painful to even think that we might not be able to visit that place ever again. Though they are carrying most of the stuff that signified our childhood, it still is impossible to bring with themselves the air we breathed in, the comfort of being in that small and beautiful town of Solan.
