And she made me cry…

Posted: November 13, 2006 in i_THINK_therefore_i_am

It was on 12th Nov. ’06, Sunday morning, when she came around 11AM and at that time I was organizing few things at my home. She started cleaning the house then she might have felt something.. She asked me to prepare some tea for myself. I told her, ‘Paal ille’ (I don’t have milk). She said, ‘Okay, give me money and I will get it’.. Then she asked me whether I have got anything to cook and if I would like to have Maggi as well.. I thought for a while.. ‘Hmm.. Okay’ and handed over some money to her. I was bit surprised and was thinking why she is doing all that. She got all the things from local kirana shop and when she was leaving around 11.30 she told me to go and have tea and maggi. She said, ‘It’s already 11.30 and you haven’t had anything.. ‘po.. po’ (Go) and with these two words she left. And it was only after 2 minutes of numbness when I realized that I was still standing at door.. surprised and overwhelmed. Sometimes we don’t value their worth and crib when they don’t come to work and when they ask for Diwali bonus, but I was moved to see such a generous & motherly gesture.. These small things make difference. She cared for me when some of my so called close friends don’t even have time & will to ask whether I am ‘Dead’ or ‘Alive’.
