Last tuesday was the graduation ceremony for the graduating batch of students at the school I am working at.
As they went up the stage and said their goodbyes, my heart ached a little. These was the batch of kids whom I first encountered when I arrived here. Slowly one feels an attachment to them and now it was time for them to leave the nest.
Its always easy to take things that you are used to, and take it for granted, benignly believing that things will always stay that way.
And I start to wonder if this was a fraction of the feelings that mum is feeling, knowing that I too, will one day leave the nest.
Its not easy to let go. But life goes on.
