My mom literally leaves me speechless sometimes. If I was 5 years old, I would hate her for the things she does but I am at that age where I have to understand and grasp the concept she's been trying to preach.
A few weeks back, Chennai was raining and who doesn't like to be snuggled up in bed with yums to gobble. Anyone?
But here is the truth! Everytime you try to be comfortable and enjoy, the life teaches you a lesson. If not life, at least your mum does. Or so I feel, whatever!
I was being the sweetest version of daughter and I told her that I'll be ordering something yummy on Swiggy. And I don't know if it was her mood swings or just another mother India version, but she got annoyed.
She said, "Yeah right! Very comfortable for you, no? Sit at home and order because there are guys out there working in this rainy season to earn their livelihood by delivering food to your doorstep. You think they won't love it if they received the same comfort? Or do you think it's their job to do this so you can order even if the city is on high alert? See, if you can't comfort them, you shouldn't cause a trouble too. Of course it might earn them some commission, but it's not justified to make someone go to restaurant, pick your food, and get it delivered just because you know they will do it willingly for a small share of money they get out of it. Not in this rainy season because they can also fall sick just like you. And what if someone has sinusitis issues just like you to go through all the complications? Ever thought about it? Well, think about it now and change your attitude towards people." And this, kind of stayed with me. I don't know what makes her think to this extent but I feel grateful to have someone like her in my life who can preach these things unexpectedly. I am grateful that she shows me things that wasn't even there in my mind. .
