"Well for new correspondent. New Delhi is known as one of the toughest gigs in the business. ABC's South Asia correspondent. James oaten takes a moment to reflect flex on his first trip to India many years ago. Have you ever been to Delhi. It's a question. I was asked to lot before I took this parsing. And it's a fair enough question. I just signed up to living here for a couple of years. I'm sure many people were just curious asking a genuine question. The mind interpreted it as something more ominous like. Have you ever been to Delhi. Because that place is a mess or it's chaotic or you're going to hide it. The thing is I had been to this city before or more broadly India thirteen years. He's ago and I had some great experiences costs as an extra in a major bollywood film partner. If you squint really hard you'll see me with a mop of hey. In the background of a wedding sane are remember long train journeys watching the southern Indian country. Saad pass by the dies before being glued Tia smut fund was an option. I also had the Best Cup of Tae in my life and thanks to nostalgia. It's an experience on. Never get again but after six weeks six in this country like many others. I left feeling certain that I would never return firstly. I think it's important to acknowledge an underlying issue in my hi elise. Mental Health was poor in the weeks before India I had for the first time accepted. I had depression and I had booked in the first of many many sessions with a psychiatrist for when I got back. Mining International Travel before India was a university exchange in Sweden. So when I landed here instant instant culture shock if gone from the world's most organized to the most disorganized and this was a time when the trouble got lonely. Planet was the Backpacker Bible. Instead of using the Internet. To plan your trip you followed. What lonely planet told you to do h destination? I went to India. The backpack of Bible Uh had a flurry of warnings. Donate the straight food. 'cause you'll get sick. What chat for this scam will be wary of copycat hotels? I'm sure it was just trying to be helpful. But my mind instantly saved up before I'd even arrived at H. Destination and of course I did get sick. I did get scammed. I did get fella down the street from Pesky Venice who would not take no for an answer. I just wanted to relax but instead always constantly on edge so here I am more than a decade lighter back in India. I took this job for a whole range of reasons of what it to be. A foreign correspondent as far back as high school a strongly believe Australia's his future lies in Asia and now with the rise of China set in motion. I think we're going to focus a lot more on the alternative monolith India but taking such such a big leap comes with a range of emotions from a static terrified the spoke with many journalists and camera prices worked he about their experiences. And I I told me the best and the worst the whole time I'm wearing will it. They like last time and then something happened. I came to Delhi in November. Uh for a handover and those emotions from a decade ago gone. Instead the opposite happened things started feel manageable. A started to become calm. A feeling that I enjoyed for most of my father wakes in Australia. It was as if I was don processing all the other emotions and finally ready to take the leap and now I'm here in suburban Deli enjoying my new home with my partner who generously supported the big move with wandered. The streets called the train. Nine shopped for groceries joined the gym and the Stratford. AMAZING NO DELHI BELLY. Much of the smooth transition is due to the help of my colleagues here in Delhi and back in Australia understand their automatons ahead. What I'm saying now is a sanitized version of South Asia? I've not enjoyed the brutal actual daily summary Yet. I've only had a ton of so-called pollution season where the air quality in winter is consistently as bad or worse to Australia experienced experienced this bushfire season. I'm yet to hit a pointless. Bureaucratic roadblocks orsay firsthand the extreme poverty and desperation. That exists here and it's almost guaranteed that I will get sick hopefully it'll just be a tummy bug and not dengue fever. But at least now as confident as I'll ever be that I can do this it's left me. Feeling excited to experience this region all over again with a clear mind and urbanize. What an opportunity? Wish me luck. We certainly do wish you luck. James Odin the A._B._C.'s New South Asia correspondent congratulations on the new GIG. And all the best..
