Home sweet home




Dear CDs,

Arrived back home to India this morning with three suitcases and a backpack. Had to buy a new suitcase in Canada as things to bring was too much, last minute shopping, etc. Customs was a breeze through. Saw only one officer who was looking at the roof, like hey prabhu yeh kaisa night shift hai! I could have carried couple of gold bricks on my head without being noticed by him.

It was a strange feeling at the airport when leaving. Excitement of returning to India, at the same time leaving the country after 12 years of stay that shaped my future, the country that taught us lot of things. But the excitement of returning superceded everything. Shared my excitement with the desi couple next to me who thought I was joking that I was returning back to India.

Having good time with family, emptied the contents in the suitcases, with the kids help. Condo in Canada will be closed next week and the money will be deposited in the bank by my lawyer as all the paperwork is taken care off. Looked at a car this evening, will go for it if the price is right.

Feel relaxed!

Good but do post if and when you start having fading memories of Canada.

Good luck!

Please check in your GTA back account whether you received your CAD 330 as part of the second payment for HST equalization.

I received mine last week.

Just my 2 cents.

Got the $330 in my account. Thx for the reminder.

For shipping four boxes to India, I used seven seas wordwide. A friend of mine used their services and was happy with it. Check their website. Free sturdy boxes, good rates. Hoping for a good service.

First night after moving back, good night sleep. A new day starts. Will look at the car again. If the home minister agress, will buy it.
