The concept of coming home
is one that has become a part of our lives in these times when we are at the
pinnacle of human migratory journeys. Wherever we move, for whatever reasons
that may be, there is always that place called home. The place we were born or
has a certain tie beyond rationale or emotions. We all have gone back to that
home every now and then, some people more often than others.
In the beautifully edited
and crafted documentary ‘Heima’, the band Sigur Ros has captured their home
coming in a special way that is true to the spirit of the band as well as Iceland - the country they call home. Visually stunning and hauntingly pulsating it is their special
ode to their homeland.
Meanwhile in her new video called ‘Wanderlust’ the
other Icelandic crooner Bjork has her own journey of the very act of coming
into this world. Not since her ‘Human Condition’ video have we seen anything of
The cacophony of India. That feeling of intense chaos that hits your every sense when you land in India. As an Indian (having grown up in India, but living abroad now) this is an old feeling that is elevated to new levels the moment you land back home. The colors explode at you in new ways that you had not seen or experienced before. There is a sense of newness each time. When I was living in the US, I used to tell my friends there that this is what I missed about my homeland.
Recently, reading Kiran Desai's book 'The Inheritance of Loss', this paragraph summed up that feeling in ways which I possibly could not have expressed with my limited writing skills.
It also captures that feeling of 'coming home'. When the vision is unblurred and we all can see clearly.
