About me

Daughter of a small town-

Raised by protective parents and  protected by mean Uncles

Made tough by hard teasing  nieces, nephews, and cousins

Taught to fight by bickering kids six houses down

Received by kind neighbors and  fiercely loved by friends

Conditioned by teachers and nosy neighbors

Sidelined by mean girls trying to boss around

Helped by acquaintances and friends of friends’ relatives

Inspired by the stories told by neighborhood aunties and paattis*

Looked out by every one in town

Overcame  hurdles in an ever moving world


*paattis–  eldely neighborhood women who are often fondly called as grandma
