The Brahmin

(story from the book: "the peole of India")

One day, out of sheer boredom, she notices the bus driver looking at her in his big mirror. She smiles to herself; her hand unconsciously rises to smooth down her shining black hair. When she looks up again at the mirror, his eyes are already back on the road".

"ראיתי את הראיון שנעשה עם אמא, פעם אחת עם כל המשפחה. עכשיו אני רואה חלקים ממנו לבד. יוצאים שם דברים, שפתאום אני מרגיש שאני לא רוצה להתחלק באמא הזו שלי, שכבר לא חיה. אני רוצה שהיא תהיה רק שלי”.
