An incessant talker Amma, stops by my room, every morning – next to which is her garden. Even at over 80years, she is very active and I see her working in the kitchen, which is opposite to my room, or in her garden which is what I see outside the window of this tiny room that her son and daughter-in-law have rented out to me. Beyond her gardens, the view opens up into a panorama of lush mountains enveloped in mist.

Amma tells me about her (other) children and grandkids, her garden, her chickens, asks me about the school (that I’m volunteering at) all in Nepali – which I am starting to get a little bit hang of now. I’m surprised how the language isn’t a barrier between us and we talk every day for several minutes, communicating in signs, smiles, and few words.
