Both parents believed in God so early in the morning they meditated and prayed to God for their healthy and peaceful life. When Anu was born her mother didn't get enough food at that period. Then father went to a nearby city to get the job. When he reached the city, it was new for him and he knew nobody there. So, he sat under the tree and was looking here and there.

The man had a cloth store and he asked if he wanted to work there, can come with me and work there. The father became very happy and started to work in that cloth store.
