What is the best advice you have got from your mother?
She told me, ‘Dream big in life and follow through the dream with passion. Don’t sit happily with the small wins in-between, nor feel bad about the small impediments on the way. Just learn your lessons, good or bad, and look ahead. That it is how you will find your happiness and meaning in life’.
What is the fondest memory of your mom?
While I live far away from my mom, she and her mom live together. I always saw to it that my mom is comfortable and well looked after. I made the mandatory daily ‘Hello’ and ‘How are you’ calls, and life went by. But a few years back, I decided to spend quality time with her. For the first time in many, many years, I learned so much more about her, not just as a mom, but as a person. It was a different kind of emotional bonding, and a fond memory to treasure.
What do plan to do with your mom first when the lockdown is over?
Since she is living with her mother and without any house help right now, I keep motivating and cheering her up every day. Once the lockdown is over, my friend and I want to go on a ‘mother-daughter’ trip with both our moms.
