I am not a person given to thinking about “Days” – it seems too much like selling out – to commercialization . But when Mother’s day arrived – what did I do? I kept telling AppaPappa Noyonika wants to get me a mother’s day gift, she really does.. until he actually went and got me a lovely pair of earrings and beautiful bangles. What I will do for gifts!!
Noyonika made me a card wishing me for Mother’s day.
I remembered the cake I baked for my Ma last mother’s day when I was in Guwahati. I posted about this on that day.
Sigh.. she’s so far away this time. I was jealous of my neighbours – they’d come to wish me and got me a lovely potted plant, and had to leave in a hurry as they were visiting their Mom. Why do we have to stay so from our parents – is it worth being so far away from family? Appa pappa and I are having such existential questions these days.
Oh no, this is quickly turning into a blog about something other than Mother’s Day. Or maybe not. If Mother’s Day is to celebrate Ma’s and Moms and Mother’s and Maters and Mommys then can I be blamed if my thinking goes to my own Ma and how far we are from her?
