'Dad took home a whole lot of Mum's clothes when we emptied out her room at the rest home. In his downstairs bedroom, where the curtains are always drawn, sagging cardigans hang alongside trackpants and a few musty salwar kameez. The sarees are presumably still at the bottom of the dresser in his bedroom upstairs, but it's hard to know for sure. We try to avoid going into the house. Dad, 94, worries we'll steal their things.'  (Publication abstract)
