Maid of Honour
Anushka is very fond of our top up maid who comes in every afternoon for a couple of hours.
However, the lady has always been rather critical of little kids, even her own were largely raised by her mother in law.
Hence her fondness for Anushka is surprising. Though she would not want to be a full time baby sitter- she more or less does it for an hour or so giving my mother much needed respite. She even cleans up her 'gandhaa' !!
Anush calls her Aththai and wants to do all the household chores with her. They talk in a mix of Tamil and English, forcing my maid to pick up English words which to her own delight she grasps rather well.
It reminds me of a maid we had in Vijayawada whom I was very fond of when I was little. Wonder where she is and what she is up to....
