ONE LAST TIME
Was just thinking yesterday - America is such a great place to live in! Clean surroundings, vast spaces, so many fun things to do, great shopping outlets, restaurants, roads that actually make me want to drive cars - what a drastic difference in the standard of living! Unlike many people I know who miss India like crazy when they're here, I thought I was doing quite well... until now.
Just got news that my paternal grandmother passed away a few hours ago back in India. Numb mind frantically trying to cope with the thought that I will not be able to see her one last time. Because I am here, in America.
What am I giving up? What am I getting? The familiar tongue of death licking all over my neck trying to make me vomit everything that I thought I had chewed, swallowed, and digested about losing the ones I love...
