    My daughter wanted to do that but she went to please us.

  2. I had to miss it as I have come back to India and joined work. Getting an ex-India leave would have been a hassle.

    You don’t say how sorry you are that you missed it, maybe you’re philosophical about it. If you are sorry, you can imagine that you went and I will imagine that I did too (I’d be in the audience being proud). Something like that happened to me in real life last year. I went to a “battle of the bands” type thing at a local university and before it started a nice young man came back to where I was sitting and asked me to take photos of him and his band when he came on stage. I agreed although I was rather daunted by the prospect because I’m not a great photographer. I tried to hand the job over to my partner but he said “No, he asked you.” I took lots of photos (he asked me to) and he was very good, he played the guitar and sang which always makes me go a bit weak at the knees. When the show was over he came up for his camera and thanked me (I hope the photos lived up to his expectations). A man who was sitting behind me tapped me on the shoulder and said “Your son’s very talented”. I remember it was a lovely moment because I glowed with pride, my partner later told me it was written all over my face. I didn’t tell him it wasn’t my son. I fall very easily into the role of parent.

  4. No I didn’t say that because it would have brought tears to my eyes. Sometimes one just can not do what one wants to. I was in Warwick for one year and I loved it. Loved every minute of my stay there. Going back was truamatic though I was going home to my family, my friends.[ Of course my family joined me in the UK. ]I had difficult time settling in back home and perhaps I did not want a re-cap of that. You must find this strange.But it happened with me.
    If I dont think of myself, then as a mother of two sons, I have to think of what is best for them now. As a parent, I knew I shouldn’t go back but as an individual I know I will go back. But I need to be in India at least for 3 more year before I can even think of going back. My son is in class 10, a crucial year for his career.
    I don’t think I could afford to lose that kind of time trying to re locate myself all over again .
    You write so well that I felt compelled to share it with you and would love to stay in touch with you! My personal email-vandanalunyal@hotmail.com
