THE 'UNIQUENESS' OF MY NATIVE PLACE!

Indian Bloggers
I might have traveled to the distant lands a dozen times in my life where the habits, culture and behaviors of people are definitely quite different from those of my Country or especially of my Native Place..

(Actually mentioning the name of my Native Place is immaterial here and so I just leave that and proceed..)

In all these places, no doubt I very often came across everywhere smiling faces, never forgetting attitudes, always wishing for good, the best ways of saying greetings, send off etc showing off care…care….care… all the time.. A few examples being..

At Food Store..

“Hi! How do you do?”
“Did you find everything?”
“Here you go!”


At a Coffee Shop..


“Hi! How was your Day?”
“It’s 3XXX and 55YYY please!”
“There's your Coffee….Enjoy!”


At a Mall..

“The Shop is straight Right 100 yards away!”
“The Rest Rooms are to your Left….”
“You are Welcome!”


At a Public Place when encountered with a Stranger..

“Excuse Me..”
“Thank you very much..”
“It’s OK!”


At Home, when a problem was being fixed by a Service Agent..

“Hi! I am from.. There was a Complaint..”
“That’s the job done..”
“Good Bye..”


No doubt very Orderly behavior everywhere and big smiles around.. But as days moved, I distinctly could notice some special thing missing amidst all that talk, order and further the prosperity around..

As my time of visit was over to the new place I recently visited, I am again back to my own Place.. And from that day onwards I'm amidst my older interactions with my people as usual going on around..

“Hello! Sir! How are you? It’s long time I’ve seen you…. How was your visit? Sir…. Listen….There was a problem in your absence….”
“Hello Sir! Why are you coming in my way? What happened to you?”
“Where do want to go? Why are you not in the queue?”
“Hello! Please move on…. If you simply stand like that when will we reach our place?”
“Yes! You should have crossed the road a bit carefully.. It’s OK!….Leave the matter now!”
“Who will give this item for…..? Do you know the prices of these……?”
"The Place is somewhere in this area…. I was there once…. I tell you…..I think it is…..”
“Can’t you see in the front?”


Thus went on and are going on till date the immediate dialogues, push and pulls, irritated voices, enquries with no proper reply, some sarcastic remarks and even a few scoldings etc etc..

But as I re-look into all these again and again,  I could sense that 


  • There's some unique warmth in all these interactions, 
  • The irritated and angry remarks even though are hurting a bit, otherwise are quite normal as problems in front are too many for many and struggle is much much harder, 
  • The questioning looks quite well justified as unless one picks up the Pace, living would be coming to a halt in no time and 
  • And behind all what they say or what not they say, people live through humble life at the back of ever-limited resources with them but never with a let down feeling!

And in this context, I could very clearly see my inner feelings forever firming up with a Single Message from deep within that.. 

“Wherever I may go, I have to come back to this my Sweet Home Town ultimately one day.. It's my Dearest and Ever Remembered Place on the Earth! 


I love my Place more than anything else on the Globe.. Whatever my level be, ultimately I am always a King here; nothing less of that at any time! In whatever fashion all these my people may interact with me for the whole day at the end of the day, they are always my People and forever are Unique to me in this Entire World!"

  12. I don't if its intentional......but reading the whole post I felt like you were talking about my hometown. Possibly that's the same emotion everybody else might have felt. Its hard to get this kind of reception around in India especially when you don't look or sound "local".
