A war has broken out far away from me, yet as a mother, I worry. What if...?
I sit in my home.
And a movie.
A war has broken out so far from me.
It’s so cold here, yet comfortable.
The streets are safe.
The skies are peaceful.
There is no thunder.
My flower garden is pretty.
The grass mowed.
I look at the fridge and the kitchen.
I see more than enough food for a month.
My stomach is full.
Our town is safe.
A war has broken out far from me.
But why do I see the name of my son in the list of causalities,
When he is just a baby and sleeping peacefully next to me?

Homeschooling in India is having a moment. As families become increasingly weary of traditional schooling thanks to cookie-cutter policies and high costs, parents are opting for alternate methods of education.
Come Monday morning, homes with young families across the country are in a chaotic yet familiar dance. Ceiling fans are turned off, and lights turned on with a vengeance.
Teeth are cleaned, and breakfasts are shovelled down. Uniforms and shoes are thrown on, and heavy school bags are picked up as parents and kids alike make a mad dash for the door.
Your goals made you move to a new city. I saved my pocket money to call you from a local PCO since my house used to get itemized phone bills.
When I write this, I feel as if I am 19 years old again.
Could we rewind further to our childhood days as tiny tots and neighbors? Due to your dad’s job transfer, you had to move out of town. Our paths crossed again unexpectedly after a decade or more. Amidst the crowd, our eyes met unexpectedly at a family function. I recognized you, but I wasn’t sure if you remembered me. For the entire event, I kept looking for you and felt butterflies in my stomach whenever our eyes met.
