It is the eleventh anniversary of my kidney transplant today. Wow!! Just wow!! I feel lucky and happy to see this day,thanks to my mom .She was a person who was always concerned about my health.I still remember the letters that she wrote me during my college days (early 90s). Our only medium of written communication was English as I didn’t know how to read or write Kannada . She was not very well versed in English, but still took the pains to write to me in her own hand. Even though they might have had lot of mistakes , those letters were so lovely and sweet. The letters always started with “How are you? Hope you are eating well. Make sure you eat the dates with honey every day”. 🙂 I cherish those letters and read them every now and then. It always brings a smile to my face.
