His Lo­ca­tion

Swe­den

I met my Swedish boyfriend, Os­car, when he at­tended my univer­sity as part of an ex­change pro­gramme in 2008. Since then, we’ve mostly lived apart—him in Swe­den and me in Mum­bai. When we were long-dis­tance, we made an ef­fort to talk ev­ery sin­gle day. We found a nar­row win­dow of time dur­ing which we were both free to call and chat—when I was driv­ing home from work and he was get­ting into bed. So we shut the world out and con­cen­trated on each other, no mat­ter how tired or ex­hausted. The time be­tween our vis­its passed much more quickly be­cause I could look for­ward to speak­ing with him ev­ery sin­gle day. This year, I fi­nally moved to Swe­den to be with him. And we still take some time out ev­ery­day for

each other.”
