Women have always had each other’s backs. For every cat-fight you hear about, there are countless moments where women have supported and helped each other. And of course, the most important woman in anyone’s life is their mother! My love for my mother is not something I need to express in words. She is my friend, my rock and beyond everything else, my inspiration.
We have many people in our lives, who double up as mothers at different stages of our lives, who come in and advise us, are protective towards us, and indulge our quirks! They could be at your workplace, they could be the help in your house, they could even be someone whose art inspires and guides you. And sometimes your mother is a man! Here are the three people who I feel double up as my mother at different times in my life and in my day.
Neha has been my best friend for the past 10 years. She was protective of me then as much as she is now. We have a blast when we are together, cracking each other up for no visible reason. She is my go-to person, be it for my daily drama, or just to call when I am bored!
Sindhu Didi has been a constant in my life ever since I was a child. She raised me like her own and scolded me like her own. We joked that I even looked like her. In fact, she was the one who introduced me to soap!
As the business head of House of Masaba, Sagar is the guy who reins me in when it comes to extravagant design ideas. He is the financial figure in our office who is also the voice of reason.
So, there you have it! Let me know in the comments below who in your life doubles up as your mother!
