Watching over Mia
No one is born good or evil. It is what the society makes you.
I take immense pleasure in thanking some of the people for making me what I am
First I would like to thank my mother not only for bringing me into this world but
also for turning me into such a fine woman. She stood by my side even when I felt
the whole world going against me. She was and will be forever my best friend, my
true guide, my mentor, my confidante and above all the best mother any one can
ever get. Thank you very much mommy!
Next I would like to thank my father. Every time we went shopping for any books,
he would turn to me and ask me, “when am I going to see one of your books on the
shelves?”. Papa all the more reason I dedicate this book to you. Thank you very
very much for your encouragement!
I thank my darling husband for being so patient with me while I read poem after
poem and story after story out to him. He is my best critic. And everytime I read
out a work to him, he’s raise his eyebrows and say, “Wow Nits, that’s amazing.
I’ve never known any one to write so beautifully”. He is a great inspiration.
Thanks a lot Rags.
My teacher, Mrs. Sheela Joseph. She taught me in high school. Before my husband
it was she who used to read and edit my works. She is the best teacher any one
could hope for. Outside the classrooms she was our best friend. I still remember I
used to call her at various hours of the day to read out something or to ask her
something, and she was always ready to help me with what ever I wanted. Thank
you very very much Miss for all your prayers, support and blessings.
I’d like to thank all my dearest friend Viki for encouraging me throughout.
Last but not the least I’d like to thank God Almighty for bringing all of the above
said people into my life and for helping me write this book.
