“I was 9 when Papa passed away. But even in those few years I spent with him, I saw him as the man who gave his all for his daughter. I loved mangoes & as the summers would set in, he’d always walk into the house with a box full of them. That’s how loving he was! But in his last 2 years when he was diagnosed with Cancer, he spent most of his time on his bed, resting but even then he’d always ask about me. And that’s why after he left us, I missed him terribly. Maa started looking after Papa’s shop. My brothers and I would help her but we’d find ourselves found alone,” she said.
“But Dadaji took over & raised me. I knew him as a very strict man around whom kids were scared to play. But after Papa, he’d become soft. He’d make sure I’d study properly & had everything I needed,” she added.
