All foreign residents in India will be familiar with this little dark blue book. It is the Registration Report and Residential Permit issued by the FRRO (Foreign Regional Registration Office). It's the place all foreign residents need to register with upon their entry into the country. Three days ago, I gave up my residency in India had to return this book to the FRRO. I collected my exit papers and left Mumbai on the 20th of October. It pinched a little as gave it back. My three and a half years there have been more enriching than my words and pictures can ever express. I wish more people get to experience the things I saw, the people I met and the places I lived in during my stay in India. I will miss Mumbai the most and will hopefully visit next year.
I am back in Sri Lanka and am excited about getting re-acquainted with my country. There is so much I need to see and learn about the place of my birth and I am looking forward to it.
So SL, here I am!
Oh and if anyone needs a photographer who also has a degree in journalism.
Please send them my way.
I can shoot and write and don't necessarily need to mix the two.
