One minute Call with my mother #Kashmir

At around 6:27 pm, almost after 10 days since the valley of Kashmir has been completely locked down, my cell phone rang. I was lying down with a distressed mind in my hostel room with my eyes closed. I just got up in a hurry and saw an unknown number. Deep down in my heart, I felt that this unknown is known to me. I received the call and she called my name. She asked me whether I was fine and healthy and told everything was fine there and no need to worry. She was my mother, who may have been waiting in a line for hours just to listen to my voice for one minute. I am wondering how many mothers would have been waiting in these lines and from how much far away they would have been traveling just to say to their children that everything is fine. I am sorry but I don’t have words after this….
