Don't blame me for my aggression...its there in my blood :)
I can help it, a bit, maybe...but cannot do away with it completely.
Did I get you confused? Am sure you did :). Read on and you will understand why.
My next holiday, starting in the next 36 hours, is a very special and different one.
There are several reasons for the holiday being special. This holiday is with a group of close friends, who till some months back were actually strangers. Fate brought us together, we were lucky to be able to spend good amount of time with each other, at the end of which we developed some great (and hopefully, life long) bonds. When we started planning the holiday, we did not really expect it to materialize in the fashion it has. At the planning level, it is already a success, since we were able to plan much more than we expected. Though the holiday is yet to start, going by the history of the group (ie me and my friends), I can say without doubt that it will be a wildly successful one.
Anyway, back to the main topic of what makes this holiday special. This is going to be my first visit to my ancestral land, Chittorgarh, apart from my first ever visit to Rajasthan.
Having been settled in Bihar for generations together (not even sure how many generations), we are Biharis in every sense of the word. However, we are Rajputs too, and the origin of Rajputs historically has been from Rajasthan. The fact that we have descended from the clan of Amar Singh Rathore, and our roots are from Chittorgarh area, does not really match the facts from history, and that could be due to the earlier families migrating from one place to another over different generations. I tried to find out more info from the elders in the family but unfortunately they could not provide me with more than I already knew.
Am I excited? Yessss !!
Will I feel a connection to the place? Have to see...
Is this all true? Not sure.
Regardless of everything, there a certain romance associated with this whole story about my ancestral land, which I grew up with and which am not willing to give up now.
And last but not the least, next time someone calls me aggressive, I definitely have my lineage to blame :)
