"Return of Ulysses, a story told a thousand times. Route and continuous obstacles transform the idea of Home, expectation of hearty welcome and missed family warmth, into a myth. However, after so many years, a lot have changed. Abrupt landing on reality of today demystifies the idea of Home in an instant. Compromise or Leave?"
«I try to give meaning to the word "Home". It could not be material or habit. It is something deeper within myself. It is something found only in my memories.»
