My friend Jinal and her friend Mansi have started a collective storytelling experiment called Dsplaced, which chronicles thoughts and images from you, me and everyone who has ever lived away from the place they like to think of as home. It captures emotions for posterity. As Jinal said in a message to me:
We don’t know what will come out of this – but we surely are hoping it will help us answer some of our own unanswered questions about leaving home and continuously redefining the idea of home.
I know that having lived in multiple cities across the world, it’s nice to be able to articulate my feelings about being a nomad of sorts. I’m grateful for my experiences in so many different cities, but at the end of the day, it’s nice to think quietly of home. I’m sure we’ve all been displaced in our lives, at some point or the other. Go and put your thoughts down at Dsplaced then! More details are also available at the Dsplaced Facebook fan page.
