We attend a meeting of the Tamil School run by the Tamil Association. which functions on weekends.
I get introduced as ” Amma”. No more and no less.
At periods of our lives, we are slotted into roles . We try to fit into the roles. Roles that seem to have certain built in characteristics, manners and the hardest.. expectations. And when we don’t fit in, we cut our corners to adapt, to grow into them, an uneasy truce with ourselves and those around us .
