Here’s your winning write-up:

Mother is a great word in mankind that every one knows,but though it has an universal appeal, every person has a different perspective to describe their mother.

My mother is the best, like everybody in there childhood, I thought exactly the same. In fact she was best of the best, in my mind. Since I was growing up with my grand mother, my mother stayed in another
town with my father and brother at my father’s work place.

So it was like a gift when she came to meet us. Seeing her around was not a daily affair for me, that made her even more special and more expensive in my life. All the things related to Ma were very special to me. I didn’t want to stay away from her. I didn’t want to see her return ticket’s date, that was the age I needed her the most.

Whenever I missed her, I applied a small technique to feel her presence. That is a cute little clove, which Ma used to keep inside her mouth as a freshener. The fragrance of which had a hypnotic effect on me. Whenever she talked, laughed or even opened her mouth the fragrance worked as a magic. I loved it.

So my technique to feel her was to rush to grand ma’s kitchen, take a clove inside my mouth and feel her presence. Until today I have a weakness for this cute little black thing. Love you Ma.
