However regionalistic that sounds, it felt like home suddenly! And it was a nice warmth that spread through my heart. The sounds from the native land seemed to be visiting me and assuaging the lack inside in a very calm comforting way.
And one after another, that stranger(or maybe a friend) has been playing familiar favourite songs! A part of me wants to just run and thank him for that good playlist and his unplanned thoughtfulness. Another part of me did not want to ever go find out who it was- and stay in the beauty of the moment- strangers reaching out in a strange manner!
Somewhere I feel better, thanks to "Azhagana Rakshasiye", "Kangal Irandaal", "Sundari Neeyum" and "Pudhu Vellai Mazhai".

Deep deep pangs.
Wishing for home
for familiar ground
for some whiff of kaapi
for mom's lap
dad's friendly fights
everyone's comfortable silences
and those loving familiar faces
A deep need for home
for those old dear things and places
And yet... life tugs you back to reality
and makes you realize
that this, my dear, is existence for a few borrowed years from home.
