“I lost my husband to alcohol addiction two years ago. Since then, I moved in with my parents along with mytwo daughters.
To feed my family, I take care of a shop outside the Kabali temple.This shop was originally owned by my mother, but due to her old age, I have replaced her. I live in Varadharajapuram and change three buses on the wayhere, with a bag full of commodities to be sold. But I endure the tough commute only to ensure that mydaughters are well-fed and well-educated. Both of them are good students. They travel by overcrowded buses too. There have been instances where people have fallen off the bus due to overcrowding. It is horrific and addsto my worries.
My older daughter cherishes the dream to make it big in life by studying in a reputedcollege, but I have a hand-to-mouth existence and providing them with quality educationand three square meals is a challenge in itself. I always hope that God guides me towardsa solution to ensure that my daughters receive the facilities they deserve.For me the happiness, well-being and education of my daughters is paramount and I hopewith all my heart that they fulfill all their dreams and lead a better life than I did.”
