Woman of strength, woman of substance, woman of impeccable character and integrity, professor, teacher, mother, wife, sister and friend, superwoman, recycle rani, untiring appetite for story telling, boundless energy and i havent even touched half the number of years you have spent on this earth….. always ready to help anyone with a sob story, even sometimes when you are being taken for a ride…. i still am amazed with all that you want to give of yourself to others, i am amazed at the way you smile in the face of adversity…..humbled by the way you dont make a fuss but gently embrace all that life throws at you….i love and admire you so much, that i cant think of anyone else i would rather salute….. when people say i look like you, i always silently wonder if i can even be half the woman you are…..Happy Birthday…. i wish you the longest, happiest and healthiest years ahead….Happy Birthday Amma
P.S: Amma has never been to Goa, we decided to ring in her 70th birthday in goa….better late than never….!! the whole lot of us, my brother’s family, k, I and the birthday girl are currently soaking it all up!!
