  1. Hello Rama Chechi,
    I am always your great fan and this post is so touching, a tribute to your Amma. I could see Dakshina following your fluid feet in the same pace of yours. You are blessed to have a wonderful daughter who is chasing your moves and steps and Dakshina blessed to get a wonderful mother and Guru like you.

    Keep writing.

    Loved it ☺
