Mother of Two!

Since becoming a mother of two, I understand my own mother so much more deeply than I did 3 years ago.

Seeing Atreya and Aloka together and happy gives me the most happiness. I don't ever want to see them fight or disagree. I want them both to take care of each other after I am gone.

Of course, all this may not happen at all or at some point in their lives. I know it from my own experience with my siblings. People grow and change, experiences differ, goals diverge. For so many years, I wondered why my mother doesn't get it, why she tries so hard to get us all together, why she is so simple and simplistic.

I wonder no more.
