Just my incredible luck that I have been shaped by two amazing, brave, funny, no-nonsense women. On left, my late mum-in-law, Kanna, basketball player, sportswoman, journalist, all-round warrior. And on the right, Meera, my humorous, large-hearted, generous Amma, who is receiving an award tonight in Chennai recognising her 40-year-long journey in raising my brother, who has special needs. I couldn’t see it earlier, but I see it now: I have a little of both these women in me, their spark, their laughter, their grit, and hopefully, their empathy. That is a lot to be grateful for this Mothers’ Day. .
