So we were super excited to handover our cards in Braille to Sushma Ma’am and Vinod Sir, our mentors at the India SME Forum (India Small Medium Enterprise Forum). It was heartwarming to see them feeling so possessive about us. When other employees of the Forum walked into the meeting room to talk to us about something else, Vinod Sir held onto the two cards in Braille, making sure to collect it back from them after they had done seeing. It was cute of him to sit with both his arms outstretched, barricading the two cards kept on the table. Later when Sushma Ma’am walked in, he excitedly and gingerly handed it over to her, as if the cards were his babies. And the delight on Sushma Ma’am’s face to see the card.
While we were sitting and talking with them I get a call from our first customer, woohoo! Ravi wants to go paragliding with us. And we want to go with him too. While we were packing our laptop to leave, Sushma Ma’am walks in with our Braille cards, but she got us blessings from the Gods. A tilak on our cards, a keepsake for us for life. People like Moms do this stuff. Or I guess, you need Mentors like parents.
