Better Halves

It’s Women’s Day, and which man does not want his better half to break into a broad smile? After all, she deserves it, along with a huge amount of respect, for isn’t she behind the success of her man? She juggles many roles every day – that of homemaker, professional, counsellor, mother and friend. VIVA GOA asks men about the qualities that make their eminent wives stand apart

One thing you like about your wife...
Everyone prays to God. Some pray for request or need. Most pray for the faith. But when Jayashri prays, she prays with her heart, and prays for the world. If ever God listens to anyone’s prayers, he would listen to hers, for its the most genuine prayer I have ever heard.

One thing your wife does that ticks you off...

She is a great teacher and can convey her knowledge with depth, but always backs out at every chance to give a talk or lecture. I totally disagree with her attitude, for it is not for name or fame, but for giving knowledge that she should speak up.

One thing you like about your wife...
What I like about my wife is her level of tolerance. It is not easy to live with an artist. She has been very supportive, not just to me but to the whole family. She has stood like a rock beside all of us in bad times and good times.

One thing your wife does that ticks you off...
I get irritated when she expresses her opinions and views on subjects she does not know – she can advise a plumber on how to fix a leaking tap and a nuclear scientist on preventing radioactive leakages. But the funny part is, sometimes she is right!
