These are the 15different places where I lived for the past 32 years! Oh! God! This Paris apartment is the only home where I have lived the longest ever since I was born! Every time leaving the friend and the known faces in the grocery shop/market place behind and moving on in life....it is so exhausting to live a life out of the suitcase! Breathing the free air of Paris and my wonderful friends here made me feel at home in Paris!

isn't that glass half full or empty situation.!

you can be foreign in all those places.. or you can treat those as 'many homes'...no?

then again--whatz in places..its where people is..

Right Yuva! But when in the very place you feel 'Home' you have to prove your 'worthiness' to extend the stay every year is very tiring! Just want to chill out for a year, without proving anything!

You are lucky. You got to know India that much more.

By the way- Will "buy 1 get 1 free" survive?
