Sunita Gurav

The Optimist

Meet Sunita, my household help. She has been our house help since the day I was born. She was married at the age of 14 and became a mother soon afterwards. Since that tender age, her life has been full of hardship. Yet, she never complains. Contrarily, she is always smiling and upbeat.

Meet Sunita, my household help. She has been our house help since the day I was born. She was married at the age of 14 and became a mother soon afterwards. Since that tender age, her life has been full of hardship. Yet, she never complains. Contrarily, she is always smiling and upbeat.

Now in her fifties, she is a grandma to two school-going kids, a support to many ladies in our neighbourhood, an equal wage earner in her family and a proud owner of two rooms in Mumbai. Isn't that something to be proud of? Yes indeed!

What's more, she has joined dance classes and passionately performs in the class annual show every year. She even took a shot at learning English! But unfortunately the class shut down, else our smiling, sunny Sunita would have definitely been rechristened Sunny by me!
