I heard this song the first time in 1989 when I was at Georgia Tech. Somehow this song got associated with Maa.
That may be because I was struggling to pay for my tuition fees at GA Tech, and Maa was doing her part in raising money for me in India.
We both Failing each time. I was even arrested for working off campus without permission from INS.
I cried when I heard this song 27 years ago. This song added to the imagery of Maa's struggle that I had visualized.
Things worked out. Better times came for her and for me. Life moved on.
May be nothing moved on. Nothing. If we go by my tears, nothing at all.
