I am from Ilaben and Narendra Joshi
From the Western coast of Indian Peninsula and Southern California from fertile plains and earthquakes
I am from tex- mex and spices; rice, daal, vegetables, roti and the unforgettable mouthwatering sweets.
I am from needles, cuts, and scars. From race against time to double miracles.
I am from family quality time to daily chores through and through. From diversity, hard work, and hope.
I am from “We had no hopes for you” and “Education is a must” and “It’s time to get serious, or all the good guys will be taken”
I am from Brahmin but wine, chicken, and egg, and from judgmental, greedy, dominant.
I am from kitchen set, rechargeable red jeep, and Cinderella
I am from “Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustaini (at heart I am an Indian), “Scars to your beautiful”, hopeless, determined, and built.
Lastly, I am from “the dead one” to the unstoppable.
