Why did I choose the title? I have very little experience in this role. I could not spend too much time home as I had to go through a very extensive school/work/professional life. But with great helplessness and respect, I watched the life of my most intelligent, kindhearted, well-educated, beautiful friends spending their lives in this hardest job in the world. There are almost no vacations, no sick leaves, no gratuity, no raise, and few, if any, thank-yous. There is no special work-related visa, no Medicare, and no organizations to seek support from, but there is a very steep curve to rise and acute responsibility to raise the children, our next generation, to become the most valuable citizens of the future. All the valedictorians, principals, honor students, spelling bee stars, ballerinas, national debaters?behind all of them, there are endless toils and silent sacrifices of all personal degrees, hobbies, passions, and many more from a woman in the shadow. Devika, my heroine, is one of them. Let's read her story. Let's find the strength and endurance that hold our society together? the strength and willpower of a housewife.
