I thought homesickness was basically missing one’s family and one’s hometown. If that is the case how is it related to growing up? I get this statement when I say I have always been homesick. “Grow up Boy”! How are the two related? Can’t a grown up miss his family or hometown? Even if one does get along with his life can’t he feel homesick? I have always considered Chennai to be my hometown and that is where my heart will be. If I say I miss that place and I have always felt homesick even when I live (for a substantial period) outside the city, I seriously do not understand it being related to growing up or maturing as an individual. Ha…society and its rules!
