Awake before anyone else filling our lunch boxes with parathas and chicken gravy, and rushing to the streets that she doesn’t miss the best pick from the local fisherman. “She” can be a gentle mother, beloved wife, or a lovely sister. Almonds and lemon on the shelf, silver spoons and fried bacon on the table are signs that there is a woman inside the house, BUT!!

The truth remains bitter that no one remembers how many parathas she made or how many times she stroke our forehead with love.
