My MIL is extremely neat. There is no way to doubt that. And also when she dresses up to go anywhere, her sari is always in perfect condition. And remains that way no matter how long the journey. I always tell her I am scared to wear any of her saris because it will get totally crumpled by the end of the trip. Another thing is her cooking. She does not do much of it, but back in the day when she would cook, it was amazing. I did learn a lot of the typical Tanjavur cooking recipes from her (Since my cooking is mostly the Palakkad type). We have our differences, and probably cannot stand each other's company for more than some time, but when she is in the mood, she certainly can be wonderful.
