Dearest Amma, in my teens, we clashed a lot – like a mother and son should! And I always thought I was “Daddy’s Pet” :-)

I never got a chance to tell you that it couldn’t have been further from the truth.

I fought with you more, only because I was exactly like you. I have both your good traits – and the not-so-good ones too :-) I do so many things subconsciously even today, just like you used to.

It rips me apart every time I remember what a painful last few years you lived through. I’m so, so sorry I couldn’t be there for you as much as I wanted to, and should have been.

It’s been 4 years since you left me. I think of you every day, I cry thinking of how lonely you were towards the end, and pray for your peace every day.

I love you so, so, SO much. Hope you are pain-free and at peace wherever you are.

Say hi to appa for me.

Your loving son,

Ravi “Manu” Jayagopal
