The Story

"Mama, you'r the unsung heroine of my life. You took up jobs as an odd job labourer. dishwasher and cleaner just to bring food to table. All these years of hardships and worries have taken a toll on you, affecting your ability to walk and function as before. I will not leave you behind and will hold your hands, walk with you as you walked us when we were toddlers."
