Anger Management By Sakku Bai.


ImageSakku the daily help who comes to my house, while Lakshmamma better known as Yechamma manages my kitchen.

Raise the waddling pad,

Swear along with breathe out and strike it with all your might.

Eavesdroppers never hear anything good about themselves, I heard her name each of her employers, ranting against them under her breath, and then releasing it with nin-janmaka.

The same can be said about kneading the dough.

Maybe its time we took stock of the technical revolution.
