Tasha leaves home, for the first time by herself.
Regardless of age, saying “Bye” to a child is never easy for a parent. Every part of your mind is telling you that this is what you have worked hard all your life – so that they can go out and prosper in life in the world – a world much bigger than you will ever understand.
And yet, in that corner of your heart, a faint voice always pipes up – “So, what was left for you in your small world?”
Maybe the hope that they will come back again? Maybe those worlds will meet again?
[Which reminds me, I better start looking for tickets to India soon]
It never gets easier
Mon kharap hoyegelo….
Such is life! But the best of all is that you will see Her again.
She gotta fly. She will be back!
So this is what is in store for us as well! Sharmila & Rajib – Thanks for the heads up!
I have already started hyperventilating.. two years from now, my baby will mostly be continents away!
Best wishes to Tasha!
Until we meet again…..!!
A parents job is to teach their children not to need them anymore. The hardest part of that job is accepting success.
