Vishu. And i realised…

…that I Am Becoming My Mother…

Till last year, someone would wake me up on vishu mornings. I’d slap my hands across my eyes, and walk the dreamers walk to see the vishu kani. Fruits, cocunuts, konna, gold and rice, glowing under the vilaku.

This year, I, like my mother and amma till now, opened my eyes to the cold arrangement from last night. Then I lit the lamp, burned the incense and called the others. I am becoming my mother.
