But, before I set out on this journey, one thing perhaps needs to be answered: Why take the trouble? India is complex, confounding, difficult. Life in UK is so much more streamlined, comfortable. I can develop my business or settle into a job. Being a British national, I have as much right in this country as anyone. If I consider my own wellbeing, going back to India seems like an unnecessary rocking of the boat.
Admittedly, all the above are perhaps true. This is not about how good or bad life in India is compared to the life in Britain. It is fundamentally about who I am. This is the bit I did not understand before, and hence, engaged in debates about the merits of the decision. My change-the-world idealism may just be incurable, and I am better off making peace with my character. So, my approach will remain this: India is difficult, but that's the opportunity. I am too Indian at heart to become anything else anyway.
