Journey from ‘OR’ to ‘AND’

She was a tiny little girl, a first born in a mediocre family. Her dad had a decent job and enrolled her in a good convent school. She was a silent, caring and a studious girl. Even after the birth of her siblings, she always remained the favorite kid to her dad.

Even when their family was hit in an economic crisis, her dad never switched her to a government school which charged less fee. She, knowing the challenges around her, continued to excel in her studies.

That was a time when girls were married off soon. She pleaded her family to let her enroll for college. But their taboos never allowed it and she was married right after her schooling.

She was a daughter-in-law now. Her new surroundings were totally contrary. The basic amenities there were a luxury here. But, she never complained. She stood everything that came her way with the same angelic smile.

The people in her new home encouraged to continue her studies. She did. She was now a wife and a daughter-in-law and always remind her father’s favorite daughter. She perused her dreams and got a degree. She didn’t stop with one, but continued with the support surrounding her.

A job awaited her qualifications and she took it up even as the pay was merge. The only goal of her was to financially support her family. She worked tirelessly, day and night, dedicated.

She was gifted with two baby girls. She found time in her busy schedule to bring up both of them with good qualities. Education was always her first priority which explains her profession, a teacher.

Even now at 49 she did her Bachelors in English. ‘She’ is my mother and my hero. She proved that perusing one’s dreams has no age limit. I am proud of you mom!

She is a talented teacher and a caring mother and a supporting wife and an angelic daughter.

She is my mom and my hero
