Thu, 06 Oct 2005 17:32:00 +0000My mom only had one eye.I hated her... she was such an embarressment..My mom ran a small shop at a flea market.She collected little weeds and such to sell...anything for the money we neededshe was such an embarressment.There was this one day during elementary school..It was field day, and my mom came.I was so embarressed. how could she do this to me? I threw her a hateful look and ran out.The next day at school..."your mom only has one eye?!?!" ..and they taunted me.I wished that my mom would just dissappear from this world So I said to my mom, "mom.. why dont you have the other eye?If you're only gonna make me a laughing stock, why dont you just die?!!!" My mom did not respond.. I guess i felt a little bad, but at the same time, it felt good to think that i had said what i'd wanted to say all thistime..Maybe it was because my mom hadnt punished me, but i did'nt thinkthat i had hurt her feelings very badly.That night... I woke up, and went to the kitchen to get a glass of water. My mom was crying there, so quietly, as if she was afraid that she might wake me. I took a look at her, then turned away. because of the thing I had said to her earlier. There was something pinching at me in the corner of my heart. Even so, i hated my mother who was crying out of her one eye.So I told myself that i would grow up and become successful, cause I hated my one-eyed mom and our desperate poverty. Then i studied real hard.I left my mother and came to Seoul and studied, and got accepted in the Seoul University with all the confidence I had. Then, I got married. I bought a house of my own. Then I had kids, too.. Now i'm living happily as a successful man. I like it here because it's a place that doesnt remind me of my Mom.This happiness was getting bigger and bigger, when.. what? who's this?It was my mother.....still with her one eye. It felt as if the whole sky was falling apart on me. My little girl ran away, scared of my mom's eye and i asked her, "who are you?!" "I dont know you!!!" as if trying to make that real. I screamed at her," how dare you come to my house and scare my daughter!" "GET OUT OF HERE! NOW!!!" and to this, my mother quietly answered, "oh, i'm so sorry. I may have gotten the wrong address," and she dissappeared out of sight.Thank goodness... she doesnt recognize me.. I was quite relieved. I told myself that i wasnt going to care, or think about this for the rest of my life. Then a wave of relief came upon me...one day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to my house.So, telling my wife that I was going on a business trip, I went. After the reunion, I went down to the old shack, that I used to call a house...just out of curiosity. There, I found my mother fallen on the cold ground. But I did not shed a single tear. She had a piece of paper in her hand.... it was a letter to me.My son...I think my life has been long enough now.. and... I wont visit Seoul anymore...but would it be too much to ask if i wanted you to come visit me once in a while? I miss you so much.. and I was so glad when I heard you were coming for the reunion. But I decided not to go to the school. ...for you...and I'm sorry that I only have one eye, and I was an embarrassment for you.You see, when you were very little, you got into an accident, and lost your eye. As a mom, I couldnt stand watching you having to grow up with only one eye... so i gave you mine... i was so proud of my son that was seeing a whole new world for me, in my place, with that eye. I was never upset at you for anything you did.. the couple times that you were angry with me,.. i thought to myself, 'it's because he loves me..'My son... oh, my s[...]

Sat, 01 Oct 2005 09:41:00 +0000I shudder to think what round-the-clock shopping at Singapore's Mustafa and a new metro right up to its doorstep will do to India's diplomacy. For our ministers and civil servants, who crowd Singapore either for bilateral meetings of the utmost importance or because it just happens to be an unavoidable stop on the cheapest and shortest route between Rio de Janeiro (or Accra or Vancouver) and Delhi, will now spend even more time and money in this place of pilgrimage for high and low. Wherever Indians gather, the conversation turns sooner or later to shopping. And in the Far East, more often than not it centres on that magic name, the universally understood shorthand for two back-to-back emporia in the dingy part of Singapore called Little India. One is the old Mohamad Mustafa & Samsuddin Co in Serangoon Road. The other Mustafa Centre opened in 1995 in nearby Syed Alwi Road. They are now open 24 hours -- an innovation even for innovative Singapore -- and are served by the North-east Line, which started on June 20. Farrer Park, the new station diagonally opposite the old Mustafa, commemorates the site where on February 17, 1942, 45,000 Indian troops joined the Indian National Army, then led by Mohan Singh. Mustaq Ahmad, Mustafa's youthful 50-something managing director whose family is from Uttar Pradesh, probably wouldn't thank me for saying that his store is an Indian shrine. His website claims customers from Japan, America and Europe. Perhaps there are. In recent years, I have seen some obviously Slav types, just as the occasional Chinese face is now visible among the Malayali or Tamil Muslim shop assistants. But the overwhelming majority is still South Asian. The Chinese Singaporean MP who remarked in caustic racism that it gets dark very early in Little India -- referring to the masses of Indian and Bangladeshi workers that congregate there on Sunday evenings when the police are out in numbers to regulate traffic -- might have included Mustafa. Another joke at South Asia's expense is that the word has spread in Bangladesh that money pours out if you touch the wall of Tekka Mall. Only a stone's throw away from Mustafa, Tekka Mall is Little India's old heart, a grubby rabbit warren of shops and stalls where you can buy goat's meat, subcontinental fish and spices and gaudy nylon sarees. The wall-touching refers to the ATM machine outside. Such pejorative references may explain why Mustafa shies away from proclaiming that its main clientele is South Asian.
