Big Little Lions' Find Your Tribe is what I had on repeat throughout my stroll through the city today. As the song kept going, I couldn't help but smile on the idea how Dehradun is only home because my family lives here and how it will cease to be home if everyone I know left it. It's an extreme thought though, I agree, and what of all the times I've had here, you may wonder? Point is, the times were because of the people in it. So, the times will always be because of the people in it. Places, as I realised in Mumbai last month, only hold the significance you put into them with how you romanticize them. It's in all the people you call your tribe. Those who, despite your differences, make you feel like you belong. It's funny but as I listened to the song, again and again, all the different homes I have spread out all over the country, and some even outside of it, started coming to mind. You get the idea. In that one moment, I thought of all the people who feel like home, even some who have perhaps, closed their doors. I hope if any of them listen to the song, or if they have a fleeting thought of a similar nature, they too imagine a home in wherever I stand at that point in time. I guess that's good enough.
