Kalyani Sardesai is a Pune-based journalist, corporate trainer and author. With close to two decades of experience in assorted media houses, she believes that the point of media is to tell stories memorably. It figures, therefore, that wherever there’s a story worth narrating, she wants to tune into the vibe. Compulsively!
A mother is our first friend and foremost guru. And yet, we underestimate her lessons on life, love, hospitality, relationships, time and resource management, dismissing them as old fashioned, simplistic and naive. One son who’s finally understood the inherent solidity of mom-made life lessons is food entrepreneur Gaurav Gite, founder of Marrakesh, the Lebanese/Indian chain of restaurants. Starting with his mother’s life savings and her belief in him, Gaurav’s is a success story, whose journey would have been smoother if he had listened to Mumma!
A tribute, love letter and long overdue apology to the wonder woman that is Mumma – Gaurav’s and everyone else’s too.
