I was smoking by the side of the exit door
and she was just moving out of the washroom.
She passed a smile and asked
" Daughter ! Are you a journalist ? "
I replied "No "
She said " My husband is a journalist and he smokes a lot "
She picked out a guava of her bag, offered me and walked towards her compartment.
I thought if I could meet my mother in that train
only for moments,
but just as strangers.

Hey Ritu,

So, I'm trying to figure this out. My understanding is that conversations with strangers are easier than interactions with family —no judgments, no drama, just acceptance. Wouldn't it be nice if parents could accept us as easily as strangers do? Is that what you were writing about? I'd like to understand.

You hit the bull's eye Happy dear.
Thanks for the read
