I grew up in Shimla.For a variety of reasons our family moved to Dehradoon in late 90s. In the beginning I didn’t like Dehradoon. It was a a city in a rush to become Delhi. But slowly I started enjoying doon. And how can I not. Mussoorie was literally walking distance and Ganga was never too far away.
But Shimla never moved out of heart. I kept my links with Shimla alive by visiting the city whenever I got a chance.
Its been 24 years since I left Shimla. Out of which the for the last 14 years I have been living in Delhi. I call Delhi (South) home. I’m home in Delhi.
Life has been kind inspite the usual ups and downs. For the first time in my life I have the luxury of choice. I can choose where to live for the remaining years of my life.
Go back to the city where I was born or keep living in the city that made me what I’m today. Or take the middle path and move to Dehradoon.
