I cannot recall trying to escape from anything.When I think of the word, there are many things a person tries to escape from not just physically remove oneself but mentally too.
I had the unfortunate experience of getting calls from relatives who wanted something. I politely refused but they were not willing to give up. The only way I thought I can stop this was to change my number I did that and felt good that they will have no way of contacting me.
Extreme boredom can also be a problem, I try to get out of it by finding things to do, like read a book, write a story ,listen to some music,call a friend and chat.

I probably wrote more about Tagore’s work than anything else. The task is,how can I weave all this in a book quote, film quote, or song lyric that’s hovering all around me,is something I never gave any thought. I know I’d have to pick one from the aforementioned topics.I wonder which one will be smooth sailing.
There is a song of Tagore,I heard it when I was in my teens.This song and its lyrics reverberates in my mind.It seems to be stuck.It wants to make a permanent house in my ears. The lyrics are very meaningful.
In the song Tagore talks about his death.He views everything to remain normal,except he will not be part of it. He knows his fans will miss him. He tells them not to remember him or try to call him.
I will embed the video of the song and translate it.
