    A touching story. It makes me shudder to think of the end. Love and attachment can be very tricky.

        Sometimes I wonder on life and death, news that one keep hearing. My next post will be related to that and the need for us to be happy, enjoying every second.

    Quite emotional. Especially a mother and a child’s relationship portrays the purest form of love.

        Thank you Radhika Di. ..hope your daughters school must also have been re-opened …There’s lot of activity before the school re-opened. ..new books , new note books , new bag, new raincoat , I still remember I used to put on brown paper covers on my books and notebooks…my father used to do it when I was small latter on I learnt it from him …the schools first day was always an exciting one…new friends and new class teacher 😊

        Yes Kiran , her school has reopened. Luckily her school doesn’t insist on covering the books with brown paper. So I am spared of the tedious chore.😁
