Silent tears, unheard,
invisible in the periphery,
noticed but not cared,
are the salty drops
from a severed heart.

Happy birthday amma!

The wonderful lady who gave birth to me celebrates her birthday today. Here's to her!

There is no doubt that she is the best mother in the world. Me, nangi & malli can all attest to that.

She's a celebrated lawyer in our home town. Even though the life of a lawyer can be very hectic, when were little, we only wore the clothes she sewed for us. She was always making things. She still does, when she finds the time.

She's one of those people being the eldest of the family who can proudly say that she dragged the rest of the family ashore from deep murky waters.

She has been married to the love of her life for more than 26 years now and is living proof that love can endure anything.

She loves the three of us unconditionally even though sometimes our unintentional harsh words hurt her. When we go home, she still lays the table for us in the finest of china. She always did. She makes the most delicious aggala. :)

These few lines do not, never will, justify all that she is, all that she does & all that she means to us.

From the three of us, Happy birthday amma!
