Brenna | 3 comments The year: 1984,
and Maya -
that is, Jiva -
flies to India.

Mata is dead.

Hung from a ceiling fan,
her ashes in an urn
on its way to India.

New Delhi is in chaos -
Hindus murder Sikhs in the street
for their terrible crime -
the murder of Indira Gandhi.

Maya runs.

Taken in by the Patels,
she will not speak.
She enlists the help of a boy -
Sandeep agrees to help find Bapu.

Bapu is alive,
and together,
they flee
back to Canada.

Bapu disapproves
of Sandeep.
Maya loves him.
Across the Pacific,
they wait for the day
when they will meet again.
