My Kunjamma (mother’s younger sister).
I adore her, and I always have a special place in her heart.
Extremely soft-spoken by nature, she would always stand by me no matter what.
Our bond goes back to my infancy. As my mother had to go back to work soon after my birth, she would often leave me in the care of my Kunjamma. She looked after me, just as she did with her own son. She would take turns to breastfeed us. Maybe that is why her place in my heart is right next to my mother’s.
There is one more such person, who holds a seat next to my mother…will leave that for another post.
This pic was probably taken during her school/college days. She is in her early 80s now. May God bless her with good health and happiness.
