Desire for Solitude
'I remember clearly when I actually began negotiating the London streets on my own. I would go out frequently, but was always accompanied by my parents or Maya."Can I come and pick you up mum?" I asked one morning. I had just woken up and was still snuggled into my cosy IKEA duvet cover. She was going to the Institute of Education's library to read. It was a beautiful sunny day in London. "Okay, why don't you come with Maya?" said mother as she took her time in picking out her clothes…."No, I would rather come on my own,"I pleaded. I went on nagging her about how I desired solitude at times.
