My soul is rooted in the village

Our family for generations belonged to the country

Many many euphoric moments spent there

Soaking in the ancestral aura

Uncaged & uncontrolled

I Announce it to be the Best part my childhood

My life has been a struggle to fit into the urban culture

For ages I resisted that fact that we aren’t as sophisticated as the others

Now I see it as a gift

There is an effortless blending into the nature

My familiarity with the wilderness kindled the soul’s innate wildness

The uncultured -the uncivilised -unconditioned essence

All the recklessness has been coming to my aid

The jungle-ness shining out ecstatically & unapologetically
