Week 4: A family member

I have taken some folks for granted. This includes my family, some of my very close friends.

But, isn’t it how, relationships work?

Lately, I have realized the kind of sacrifice, unconditional love, one person has bestowed, to make my life beautiful, in every aspect.

And yes, there is just one person in this entire universe, who has seen the best and worst of me.

She remained elated, if I listened to her intently and made her proud.

She would gleefully cheer me on, when I was low.

She has been severely bruised with my words, actions at several instances.

She would still wear a smile, even when things were broken for her.

She is one of the smartest, talented, hard working women I know of and probably the nicest person I know of.

She holds a child-like enthusiasm to explore and learn, every single day. 

She’d go out of her way to make life easy for others.

She’s a blessing to everyone around her.

This she is my amma, friend, guru, family and sometimes, my foe.

She adorned several roles such as a daughter, sister, wife, daughter in law, colleague, friend. But, she did best as my mother.


I am extremely lucky to have you in my life. And, for all the good things you’ve passed on to me, either through genes or through your actions, words can’t express my gratitude.

P.S: Now that, I had spoken so well about you, can we please fight? 🙂

Week 3: Family




Who gave me life.

Who are reasons to live everyday.

Who have enriched my living.


Who gave me an identity.

Who helped me grow.

Who taught me life’s ideals, by their own action.


Who let me experience freedom in it’s real sense.

Who see only the best in me and are always encouraging.

Who are my support system.


Who would never give up on me.

Who would treat my success and failure equally.

Who know how to make me smile instantly.


Who make and break me.

Who get me completely.

Who I know, I can take for granted.


Who are simply the best.

And, indeed, I am incredibly blessed.
