No Country To Call My Own

Reshma is American. I am old enough to know I am never going to have a country of my own. Nepal was not it. America is not it. If America is the greatest country in the world, I hope there is a better planet out there somewhere, because I have not been particularly enamored of this country. If you situate yourself right, it is tolerable, but that's about it. India is heritage, it's not country.

Iran stands strong on my mental heat wave map right now. But that is political.

New York City is my playground. I have tried to think of it as a country, but it is not a country.

The Internet is the closest thing to a country I got.
