Duty minded : She wakes up at 5 AM on a daily basis, reads few books which enthuse her spirit for the day. She takes around 2–3 hours to complete all the household chores. Even when she is ill, she makes sure to complete entire work by herself. Not a TV Buff : Except for 30 min - 45 min, the TV at home is almost in a dormant position. She engages herself in listening to old music from Telugu & Hindi films & reading books on emiment personalities. Optimum utilization of time & Systematic : She doesn’t even waste a single minute on unproductive things. Excellent cook : She is a specialist in cooking South Indian cuisine, Paneer related dishes & Biryani. Nitpicking on her food is a rarity. Excellent Financial manager : Though dad happens to be a practising Chartered Accountant, mom’s financial management is just like that of a financial expert. She is maintaining her own accounts from the last five decades. Nonetheless, she perfectly knows where to spend money liberally and where to curtail. Responsible : My school used to be 12 km from home. In my first & second standard she used to change two or three buses to pick me up from the school in the afternoon, but most of the time she used to take me back in the autorickshaw thus preventing inconvenience caused to me. She is an ardent admirer of Maria Sharapova, Rahul Dravid & Viswanathan Anand. Troubleshooter : Any problems to any of our relatives or family friends, they take the help of mom. She convinces the confronting parties in a perfect manner (even I’m trying to master it, but in vain). She is a troubleshooter & has a strong will power. She rarely shows her personal emotions in the home too & it is hard to break her spirit. Counsellor : Having worked previously as a teacher, she knows what is the current state of mind & how to go about it. She recognises even a small kind of change in behavior of others. Few times when I was mentally low, it was she who acted as a pillar of strength - counselled me & made me normal within hours Agricultural expert : Though she didn’t pursue any formal course in agriculture, yet she knows almost all the issues pertaining to growing of crops, farming techniques and several other concepts relating to agriculture. She is an avid reader of farming issues published on news published on the internet ! Cheers !
