My heart bleeds to see her in such a state
Bent with time her lagging gait
The long-lasting smile amidst the pain
Now, amid the brow all the strain.
 
As every other Indian woman
Her life revolved around mustard and cumin
Conjuring gastronomical delights
For family, the neighbors too got bites.

Her constant words of encouragement
"Try, try, try again" - for us steady nourishment
In spite of her failing health
‘Educated Family’- her hoarded wealth.

With kith and kin no strife…
My heart stands in gentle awe -

Comment A very true to life portrayal of an Indian housewife in her golden years. God gave a mother to humanity to furnish a sample of His own love for humanity. Very touching.

Comment I have been fortunate to receive the Blessings (Vazhga Valamudan) for over 40 years on every occasion I met her. I pray to Baghawan to bless her normal heath and strength to remain with us for many more decades to come... Lakshmanan
