  • Mrs. Veni Varghese

    A woman is the most wonderful companion. She delivers a smile just for you, despite her pain. She tunes the best music for the lyrics of life. Many of her sacrifices are like tears of a fish. Irrespective of her age she tackles multiple challenges on her way, yet she never fails to step out with a smile the next day. She pushes you to get the moon, so that you are at least left with stars. She stands strong beside you to make you stronger in this world. One who has a woman at every stage of life, will certainly be an achiever, because she is the most wonderful companion.
