“Ma, Dad, it’s been too long since you were in Atlanta.”

“We were there for two whole months son, when Rosa delivered Pablo.”

“We miss you and want you with us for as long as possible.”

“We know how you feel, yet Atlanta is not next door and you were here with us for summer vacation just a few months before.”

“I know it taxes you guys coming all the way from India, yet….”

“That’s where we need to keep our balance, or we spend our lives repenting; you for leaving home, and we for agreeing to it. Life is more than that. Anyway, there is nothing much for us to do there when you guys leave home for work. Here at home, we are busy and have a sense of freedom and contentment.”

“I cannot agree more. Every time I talk to you, I see life from a new angle.”
