India Adventures (14): Why the Long List?

I make a long list of stuff
to bring to India,
before I departed.

Don’t forget the toothbrush,
the torch in case there are blackouts,
extra socks cos’ it’s the monsoon season….

Some of the stuff I never use,
such as many extra batteries,
and handkerchiefs…

So much excess
while there is not a single material thing
I can bring when I really depart… to the next life.
