As soon as I wake up let myself get occupied with the time cosuming task helping my sons with their preparations for the examination on Monday. Science it is. A subject, which on the face is intimidating. But as you dwell deep, most fascinating. When I assume the role of a teacher and go through the very fundamental principles of Physics, I get more and more involved...
I am gripped by a sense of growing anxiety as I embark upon a 10 day long tour, first to Europe, and then on return to IIM Ahmedabad for a training program.
The thought of absence from home has never been so distracting in the past, as it is, this time. Leaving the boys to fend for their own during the exams? The burden on Mani's head, with the driver's sudden disappearance, for an inexplicable reason? And when she too travels later during the week, how do the boys manage?
I try to push the distractions out of my mind by delving deeper into the wonders of 'time and motion' and the simple pendulum. And seek inspiration and solace in my faith in the Unseen, Universal Force.
