SYNOPSIS

My daughter’s name is Maya. I’ve been told that the word ‘maya’ means illusion in Hindu philosophy. As I watch her growing up, spinning like a top around me, I realize that her childhood is not something I can grasp but rather – like the wind – something I feel tenderly brushing across my cheek.
