There are certain stories that are very close to our hearts and of course quiet a touchy subject. Complexion of my skin is definitely one of those. I am not fair but can I still be lovely? Let’s see… 🙂

‘Cabin crew prepare for landing’ pulled me out of my peaceful slumber

A few highs and lows and finally the wheels touched the ground

It was still dark outside with only a few illuminated dots miles away

Sun was fast asleep – completely zonked out

As I stepped out of the sardined Boeing 777

A delightful and extremely humid breeze of air fanned my face

My chaotic hair flew back in perfect submission,as I breathed this air

My body loved the dramatic transition

From a snowy London to a springy Lahore

From -2 degrees to 20 degrees.

I had travelled in time, from one season to another

In eight hours, just like a movie on fast forward

Finally, back to where I belong.

Honey, I am home!
