He is my husband’s chithappa (father’s younger brother) and one whom I look up to. Despite being elite, he is very simple, down to earth and friendly. I have enjoyed the many conversations that I have had with him. He has been appreciative of all my attempts, however stupid and small they may be and has provided suggestions for improvement. He has been there whenever I needed him. I cherish this new father which matrimony has given to me. God’s ways are always great! Thanks chithappa, for this superb article!
