“This is literally how we grew up, seeing our mothers serve our fathers and as soon as we were old enough, we were taught how to do it and to do it right. My father, a layman and commoner, was served like a king in his home because that's exactly what he is.
“As soon as he walked in, I would take his jacket and shoes, hand him the remote and proceed to the kitchen to either tell my mom that he has confirmed that he is hungry or to fetch the warm water for him to wash his hands and wipe with a clean cloth. Sometimes my mother and I would pass each other on the passage as she carried the food on a tray or I'd go back and fetch everything.”

“Same thing with my grandparents, I still do that when I visit them and my grandad get served. Even the tea first thing in the morning, my grandma often give me such talks that never let the new day generation ruin the beauty of our culture.”
