Following are my thoughts after watching my mother and taking experience of hers till her death.
My Mother (I call her as my creator, my designer, my producer, my first teacher, my first mentor and my first guru), Mrs. Mangala Narayan Phadke understood, analyzed and validated (that’s my perception as son) that her disability (She had only one functional & working hand. And that too left. Her right hand was paralyzed with no sensation at all since she was 3 or 4 years old. She was orphan too. She lost both the parents when she was 3 to 4 years old. Since then she lived in many homes like unwanted person. No one loved her and no one respected her) is the ultimate truth for her life.
All along (the day she realized about her disability till her death) she converted her disability (than complaining about it. She never blamed anyone and/or everyone including her fate & luck. She never made her disability as an asset for getting sympathy from others) in to inspiration.
She converted it in to tremendous and beyond imagination strength and will power.
She was born as problem solver and she was fighter too. She had answers for every question that I asked since I started talking.
As a son, I wouldn’t like to change my gifted life and birth and journey for the rest of the world.
I would like to be her all along and till my last breath.
Problem solver and fighter.
Her loving son,
