And all the men and women merely players
They have their exits and their entrances
And one man in his time plays many parts"
As I settle into my new home, I am reflecting on all the times I have moved. My first move was at the age of 10, from Gulbarga to Bangalore for better schooling opportunities. Although I enjoyed staying with my grandparents, I missed my family and longed for summer vacations to go back home. Over the next 7 years, in Bangalore, I built deep relationships with my grandparents, Maama, Maami, and cousins. By the time, I started to call Bangalore “home”, it was time for me to move to Surathkal for my undergraduate education.
