The Nowhere Man

Bumped into a few Bangladeshis at Sydney's Miller Street.

They were talking in Bengali and I asked them for directions in Bengali.

We began to talk. Turned out they were at the 'Uni'.

On hearing I was from India, they asked me if I was from Kolkata.

Mumbai, I replied without thinking.

Got a bit philosophical when I left them.

Where am I from?

I agree we often call ourselves to belong to a place that has the most remarkable impact on our lives rather than the place we are native of.

I've been away from Mumbai 9.5 years and counting and still say that I'm from Bombay...go figure

and for me it's a tough call. I think both Calcutta and Mumbai have had an impact on me @dialoguewithyou

@life unordinary just as Kolkata is Calcutta for me

Sounds interesting. Looks like you are a specialist on this because you just made it so easy to be with you, motivated me to learn more on the subject!
