What makes me return to India so many time over the past 7 years? Well, besides this wonderland hypnotised me, the Sri family in New Delhi is one big factor! I feel safe even I was down south in Chennei.

In 2001 Christmas eve when I about to depart from Singapore’s Changi airport, someone asked me, “Where are you going? England? France? Australia or Canada?” I said, “India, New Delhi.” This person was so surprise that I choose India for my Christmas holiday. It sets 3 of my Christmas in the following 7 years were spent in India. It wasn’t intended to be, it just happened.

I knew Sri in Melbourne, while both of us were studied in RMIT. He was doing his PhD, and I was doing my MFA.
