It was half past 5 in the morning, cold water ran through my fingers as I did the dishes. While two sons slept oblivious to the fact that another human was wide awake and working on the chores that would help their day have a smooth run. Both were cozied up in their blankets and the warmth of their beds enjoying the comforts that came with being born boys in the Indian culture. One, already brought up in the Indian culture of pampering sons and the other waiting to be brought up in the same muddle (which I will nip at the bud and makes sure he grows to help his wife with the mundane house chores)
Dishes were just one of the tasks at hand in the morning routine that had to be completed before packing lunches for the three of us, waking the child and putting him through the morning routine, ironing his uniform and jumping in for my bath and getting ready to get to work at 8.00 am.
How nice it would be if we co-ordinated and shared tasks, a win-win situation for everyone.
Not a perfect morning to have a “Eurekha” moment , yet I had one. Why not write a book on the same topic !
