My akka is my teacher

Get news updates:What's this?
March 15, 2007

She is my AKKA.. My elder sister.

From my childhood she has been a great source of inspiration. Due to family constraints she could only complete her education till 7th, but never compromised with my education.

She would beat me up and complete the school home work; and she used to motivate me till the time I finished my engineering course.

Unfortunately, she lost her husband when she was 27. She was left with only her two sons and nothing more than that; not even a house. That was my SSC year. Four months after this painful incident our results were to be declared.

She was really worried whether I would pass the exam. I think that day was the greatest gift I could ever give to my Akka & I had seen clearly in her tears.

I stood first not only in School but the entire center.

Despite the several obstacles she never compromised with her characteristics of honesty, truth, hard work, dedication, friendliness and caring attitude towards all.

She is now one of the successful business persons in my town, Belhe (Pune). I think for me she is the best example of a complete & an ideal person. I am proud to be her younger & ladka (loving) brother. She calls me by name�Sune
