Mom, life is hard, it’s not as easy as I thought in America

Sangram Lama Dear mom, Today, I am having this intense yearning to hold your hands and lie down my heavy head on your lap. I want my headache to melt under the warmth of your lap. I know it is quite strange but I want to feel the sensation that I always felt when you would run your slender fingers across my scalp, parting my hair, looking for lice. I miss that pinch on my head when you would squeeze the louse that you found between your thumb nails. I always feared that your nails might pierce my scalp. Aiyaa! I would scream and run away from you. I was so messy back then, right mom? I would seldom bathe. But the water was ice cold even in the summer and literally ice in the winter, wasn't it? We didn't have enough drinking water, let alone the privilege of hot water supply for shower. You see, that’s why I always hated to bathe. I don't know if you ever understood my reluctance..
