“I bite my lips to stop myself from crying tears of joy as she moves the sofas

Godrej-almirah loving Kerala means about ¼ of your actual house floor space.”
I have seen my mother go through dozens of daily helpers. The clean ones, the abominably dirty ones and the ones who were ‘keepers’ but who couldn’t stay for long. So you see maid-hunting is a lot like ‘mate-hunting’. You go through life looking for the Right One, and if you’re lucky you find them.
