I watched Dhobhi Ghat last weekend. [Aamir Khan has become a very self-indulgent actor. But that is neither here nor there.]For the first time in five years, I did not get the usual pangs when I sawBombay on screen. I was able look at it with amusement, with interest, with vague nostalgia but maybe not with longing.

Has the distance been achieved? Am I ready to move on?
