My tale is nothing in comparison to the way the young women in Kerala cope with separation as husbands move to the Gulf. In fact as I write about their impending separation I am periodically channeling military wives from the US and from India so that I dont exaggerate II's grief.
Its easy to make it over dramatic. I am telling myself this is a story of two incredibly wealthy people that are doing this BY CHOICE. I shouldnt be trivializing the sacrifices military wives make. THEY DESERVE to do rona dhona not II so much.
Thank you for reminding me of the "Gulf wives" they are the single most poignant essay of separation for "non combat" reasons. The men work mostly in inhuman conditions, sleep in 9 10, 12 in non air conditioned 10*10 rooms with no room even to display their new wife's picture, no privacy when they talk on the phone. They dont see the birth of their child, they dont see them walk or crawl
Its very cruel. All for a handful of dinars and dirhams?
Thank you for the reminder, dont even compare this to the Gulf wives... it would be an utter shame
Soldiers and their families too
If anyone ever see a soldier or commando.. thank them.. i hv done it once..he returned me a broad smile and hand on my head as a blessing..
Sandese aate hai song give me tears everytime.
