God could not be everywhere, so he created mothers.

Quote: Jewish Proverb

 

I still vividly remember how I pestered my dad for my first computer when I was just 13, bluffing that all my classmates have one. It was just a mindless desire. He finally bought me one with his savings and left to the town where he was working; the rest of us were in the city; he used to visit us once in a week.

 

After buying it, I just played a couple of games and didn't know what to do with it. I wept in my mother's arms heavily, blaming myself that I have wasted dad's hard earned money for nothing. She just brushed my hair and said, "It's ok, you will learn gradually, even in this playing will you learn some computer; nothing goes wasted. If you have this sense of seriousness that you shouldn't waste dad's money, then you will make good use of it".

 

This day I'm a game programmer, often called a geek with exuberant interest in computers; all this is only because of her courageous words.

 

Thank you அம்மா! Wish you a very happy birthday, dear mom :)

 

P.S.: I sneaked this candid photo when my nephew (her grandson) Skanda was playing with my mom ;)
