Please look after mom
I grew up in the same village where the author grew up and could find a lot of common between my own mother and mom in this book I cried many times while reading this book. The author used "you" as a second person narrative and she tried to say that we readers are guilty of losing bonding from our own mothers. Great work!
Family is everything
You will understand how our family always trying to watch out back even if we are committed crime
Tribute to a mother's life long sacrifice and the children who take it for granted, failing to see the person with hopes and dreams of their own until its too late. Story of my life. How I wish I'd had the fortitude and wisdom to have read it while my mother could still be properly thanked.
