Weird Is Normal

I was driving on the streets of Bangalore at 5.15 in the morning, the car stereo playing Ye Jo Desh Hai Mera (Swades); and my sleepy eyes went wet with tears; a feeling of gloom and sadness accompanied me into the silence after the song had ended. It’s only then that I snapped out of it, and thought to myself, “I manage such performances in the cinema theatre, while watching films. Now the sound tracks are getting to me. I know I’m sentimental, but this is new. I’m getting weird. But you know what? I feel normal.
