Air India AI 307 smelled like a supermarket in India or Ambika Masala Shop in Shin-Ohkubo, Tokyo.
Speaking of smells, I have been referred so many times to Indian people's body odor before, making me extra conscious and nervous about how I smell. Being back in Japan for 1.5 years this time, I learned that many Japanese people also smell, sometimes "very much," so now I would not care about such remarks in the future. After all, we are living human beings.
I enjoyed the cleanliness, convenience, thoughtfulness, precision, punctuality, and politeness whenever I went out. At the same time, I gradually learned that the invisible unhealthy expectation could have achieved all such greatness.
Back in Japan for 1.5 years, I rediscovered many positive factors in my home country. Some are so divinized that people do not pay too much attention to the dangerous details. Being a Japanese national who suffers from a prolonged state of depression and anxiety, I believe that I should not be lost in such an illusion and shall continue viewing the truth while I gain back my self-esteem.
I wrote the above sentences on the flight, and now I am in a hotel near Indira Gandhi International Airport. I am still in transit to Pune, for I will catch the flight tomorrow evening.
The moment I landed in Delhi, I felt revitalized, even though her weather was harsh (today's temperature here was 42 degrees Celsius,) things looked less organized, and unfair inequality was still apparent. I think now India is my home, and I am proud to say so.
