A short note on my parents - Shanta Jacob

Ammachi was particular that all her seven children should get good education. She knew each one's capability and talent. Accordingly she took care of each of the childrens' studies and encouraged them to choose subjects suited to them. When any of us had problems, instead of apportioning blame, she would look for solutions and that helped us all in one crucial moment or the other. Achayan, inspite of their difference in nature, used to support Ammachi in this regard. We realised later that they had deep respect and affection for each other like in any good marriage. Ammachi was always courageous and faced adversity with prayer and determination. I am thankful to Achayan and Ammachi for supporting us and sustaining us whenever we needed such support.
