[India] No native for me...

Was speaking to my friend the other day...
and this thought came to my mind.. slowly
and steadily the few of us living in city
who had a native place will slowly not
have a native place to call their own.

Drive for money and easy lives in India
brings people away from villages (vadgoan
in my case) to metropolitan cities (mumbai).
My parents were born and brought up there
but they still have some ties in the villages.
I have none.. and I am thinking the next
generation as and when there is in our
family.. will have no village to call their
own and no village to visit..

With time I wonder what the small kids in
my family will think of when their school teacher
asks them to write a composition on "My Village"?
