During the first day of Highwaytoswades Mahesh took us to eat at Reddy Amma’s Mess in Tirupati. A mess run by this old lady.. she started the mess to meet two ends meet, today she is a business woman, a local power lord and famous for her Naidu cuisine. She sits outside her mess on a parchment and you have to tell her what you want to eat before you enter the mess, once you enter you can not change your mind. She runs the business successfully and on her own terms. Reddy Amma represents many women who start their own business for livelihood but are not captured in the nation’s accounting because they are the unorganized sector. Here in this pic with her, where she gave me a big hug when explained that i too ran a business of my own.. that made her very happy and then she said to me, but please tie your hair ..it will look nice.. still in touch with her feminine side!!
