MY HEART ACHES WHEN YOU CALL ME NRN By Dhruva Thapa

From the book "The dream we had together" (NRN = Non-Resident Nepali)

I know I left you when you were sick
But there was no way for me to make you better
I tried with all my means to care for you and cure you But I was helpless, despairing, and frustrated.

That's why like others I also chose to leave you I know you wanted me to leave,
That’s why you made it possible for me to
leave. Every night after I got home from a day
of hard work I called to console you that I am
doing fine here.

Never expressing my pain and despair
But you knew my pain
 I tried to hide it but it was in vain
 Because you had learned to understood me even before I was born.

You talked with me though I was yet to be born
You provided comfort to me in the womb

Never complaining about my kicks, punches, and disrespect. But today when you truly needed my help,
I am not with you And now they call me not your son, but a foreigner

I need a visa just to meet you and see you So I ask you to keep me in your heart
Do not sweep me away like dust.

I am a part of you and that is why
My heart aches when you call me N R N. 

What of Lahure, Madan, Buddha, or Bhrikuti Do you also call them an N R N and abandon them? Don’t you feel pride for them?
