My Guru

 I know a person,
A person whose life is nothing extraordinary, yet she lived it in the most extraordinary way,

I know a person,
A person who always  had a choice, a choice between duties and freedom, and she chose duties all her life. 

I know a person, 
A person whose eyes reflect struggle but they also have a shine of pride. 

I know a person, 
a person who gave meaning to my life by compromising the meaning of her life .

I know a person,
a person who taught me  the importance of duties over self. 

I know a person, 
a person who showed me the meaning of love and imparted me with the joy  of sharing love. 

I know a person, 
a person whose acts of kindness are now the living examples which guide my life .

She is my guru, the guru who taught me to live life..

Love you Ma, on this occasion of Guru purnima  I pray tribute to thee...

Awesome tribute! May God bless you with the ability of being able to live the legacy of the person who you love the most!

In Malayalam, which is my language by birth, they say "Mata, Pita, Guru, Daivam"

Guess that explains it all!

Ma is God personified.
God can't be everywhere, so he made mothers, right?
