The  single  layer  of  petals  and  the  faint  fragrance

  ‘Shokale  taratari  deke  dish’,  ‘Wake  me  up  early’,  Mum  reminded  me.  It  was  her  oath  taking  ceremony  next  morning. As  she  tied  her  hair  and  changed her  sari,  I  couldn’t  help  but  notice  how  much  she  had  aged.  Walking  very  slowly  supporting  herself  on  the  walking  stick  she  asked  for  help  in  putting  the
