My Mother’s Farmer Shoes
The cobbler made the sturdy shoes in which Sujata Thapa’s mother farms, cleans the house, cooks, takes care of her in-laws, teaches the family’s children, and does the bookkeeping. When Sujata Thapa visits her in Nepal, she buys herself a pair of similar shoes from the cobbler. He is puzzled. Why does she need such shoes in Canada?
