Is the wedding day important?

April 9, 2016

I hid our wedding album in storage for the longest time. I don’t show it to anyone. I hate how I look in wedding wear! I hate (Indian) weddings. I just don’t like wearing sarees or make-up or high-heels or gold jewelry. I hate having to poke my eyes with lenses. I don’t like crowds. I just […]

When Words Fail…

April 6, 2016

When I first met Mary*, what struck me most was her loud, shrill voice. She had this deliberate way of talking – enunciating every word she spoke. It’s hard to tell her age, but my guess is 70s at least. She has very short salt and pepper hair, more pepper surprisingly. She is in a […]

Like Mother, Like Daughter

I found this picture of mummy while rummaging through pictures on my recent trip back home. Needless to say, I quiver with emotion when I see a picture of her. But this one makes me vibrate like a washer-dryer on an extra large load. It strikes me like lightning and I want to fall to […]

My mother had been sick with Young Onset Alzehimer’s for almost five years. I had barely functional family relationships. My […]

Whom do you love the most?

Memories of mom – physical and emotional resurface every now and then. Precisely for this reason, I did not look at pictures of her, especially from the times she was sick. One of the major regrets I have is not taking more pictures with her when she was well. We barely have pictures of her […]

A Year of No Shopping

January 31, 2016

I grew up wearing wearing hand-me-downs from my sister or mom’s friends’ children. I remember always being excited when we got huge bags of previously worn clothing and mixing and matching whatever caught my fancy. Shopping for new clothes was limited to occasions – close family weddings (for other weddings, we borrowed or repeated our outfits), […]
