    Thanks to sister uma. Am glad of your comments. I think but for Mothers benevolence and selfless service to her family, the world would have gone to hell. If one attempts to make a list of all good things learnt from mom, s/he would find it endless. During wakeful hours, one would find many times s/he would find mother crossed the mind. In most of our mundane activities a bit of mother always cross our mind.
    When she could not afford to buy a rough note book or a black-board for my practice long derivation she suggested (1) collect chalk pieces bits from classroom and use it on floor to practice & (2) collect 12 sheet calendars the back of which is blank and use pencil and eraser to practice maths. Very first day she took to a taylor to get stitched a brown and blue linen trousers for me still green in my memory. When some one suggested as a treatment I must be given the warm foamy milk that was from udder just milked, I remember her holding me with a vessel in hand close to a cow that is being milked.
