My phone rang just now. My instinct convinced me not to pick it up but I have to for I am obliged. This time, I am not at home kneeling in front of the altar. I am out smelling the morning’s fresh scent. As I strolled on the dark road, I am humming with the mynas. Yet, I couldn’t deny the my happiness is incomplete. I still needed to settle something. I worried about money. A lot of people are asking me money. And so this experienced me thought to be tough and wiser.
I am disappointed but I closed my eyes and thanked God. In spite of all unsettled dues and unreliable people, I just took a deep breath. As my sister always said, ‘Don’t mind about them just count your blessings’. I don’t need assistance but I need your comfort… if only how it used to be didn’t change, I would still probably hear you at the other end encouraging and scolding me (in a good way). You would probably say, “I told you so”.
