I had my CAT exam from 9 am to 12 pm (noon).
Reporting time was 7:30.
The center was 2 hours away from my home so I was supposed to leave home at 5:30.
I woke up at 4:30, got ready, meanwhile, my grandmother prepared stuffed parathas and boiled the milk.
Due to jitters, I didn’t feel like eating anything so I just drank the milk and was about to leave home but she instead packed the parathas and kept in my bag.
Once my exam was over, I left the center and immediately afterward, all of my relatives started calling me asking about my exam.
How many attempts I made?
What score am I expecting?
I reached the home at 2:30 pm, as soon as I stepped into home, my grandmother was the only one who asked a different question
“Did you eat the parathas?”.
“How were they?”
“Didn’t you feel hungry while taking exam”?
“How was your exam?”
I felt like hugging her tight at that moment realizing how blessed my life is.
PS- I did eat those parathas on my way back to home. After all, she made them by waking up at 4:30 am in the morning.
