dad is organising a party for her.
with a group of friends — mostly his.
dad surprised himself and her
by presenting her with a satya paul bag.
ma, petite and spectacled, gets described by mostly these ones: hot-headed, decisive, fearless, strong, stubborn, tough.
yesterday her much older friend, now in her 70s, was chatting with me. She described ma as “charming”. been turning that one over in my head and seeing if it fits. been doing that since morning .
maybe it fits.
and i never knew.
