I have a wish

So it starts from those hot summery days for a week, then rains non-stop for 4 days, and then a super windy day follows and after that, we are back to the freezing zone again. No snow, thankfully! So that was pretty much last week’s weather news from Phoenix. That was a roller coaster ride for me! Thank you Nature, you rock! And that is why, you may notice frequent changes in the outfits as well. Yes right, survival of the fittest!

Regardless of the weather, I like this city. A bright and nice sunny place to live, with ample of shopping destinations and other fun stuff. But, I am missing India these days. More than India, I am missing my mother. Want to meet her so badly! Though we do meet on Skype every week, and we talk almost daily on phone, but there is an incomparable joy in meeting her in person, hugging her, kissing her, listening to her for hours while laying my head in her lap, sitting on the kitchen slab and chatting while she cooks, eating the finger-licking yummy food she makes, going for long evening walks, spending hours shopping with her, having gol-gappas (Indian snacks) with her, all those memories never leave my thoughts. I envy those blessed people who are lucky enough to spend time with their mothers.

Yes, I miss her. Like a small child who can’t stay away from his mother for long, who starts crying loudly once he realizes his mother is not around him, and then the mother comes running to hold the child and calm him down, ensuring him that she is right there, right next to him, just a call away! And the child believes her, hugs her and stops crying! Why can’t I do that? Why can’t I cry and call my mother to come and hold me? Why do we have to grow up? Why..? Why..?

Until we meet again..
