"The Globalized Family:Yet Another Goodbye." Manju Mendiratta and Ram Pyari Trehan. Photo: Anuja Mendiratta, 1999.

As a new bride Manju Mendiratta emigrated from northern India to North America more than 30 years ago. She has seen her mother, Ram Pyari Trehan, only a handful of times over these past years. Upon leaving the soil of her birth, Manju could not imagine that such a vast ocean of space and time would grow to exist between them, as mother and daughter. After a short visit "home" in December 1998, Manju had to say yet another long goodbye to her mother.
