The word home instantly fills one with images of warmth, peace and security. A home does not have to be a space one owns or belongs to. It can be any space that gives one a sense of comfort and fulfillment. Many songs, novels and movies have been created about the search for a home.
Even those who journey, seek and create transitory spaces that they can call home. A craving for home is as much an essence of our life as the desire for freedom.
What is it about a place that makes it a home and coerces people into coming back to it every time they seek comfort?
Home is a place that will give you space to do what you want to do. Every corner of the home is malleable and allows you to create it in whichever way you want to.
You can be comfortable enough to eat on the bed and sleep on the floor. A home allows your body to lose all the inhibitions that it strenuously maintains in the world outside and do just about whatever you want to.
You can sing high pitched songs and get them miserably wrong, talk to yourself or just do dance jigs that you wouldn’t dare to do at any other place without being drunk.
A home is a space without rules and even if there are, they are rules that you create for yourself.
A home allows you to dance to your own beat but it always takes two to tango and make the home even more special.
A home should be filled with people who are the ultimate reservoirs of your faith and love. They never let you get obsessed with your victories and nonchalantly rain over all your parades, but they are also your best cheerleaders and bring you light in moments of despair.
They mostly let you do what you like but sometimes quite rightly infringe on your so called personal space and put you in uncomfortable positions that give you the best laughs you’ll have and the greatest stories you’ll ever tell.
Your home could be the one you grew up in, the one you bought for yourself or the one you share with your loved one or it could be all these places because what makes a home is not walls or things but how happy a space makes you feel.
