Introductory Profile: About Prameela S.

Prameela is a short lady, bursting from the seams with personality. She came to America as a 21 year old, and has been a citizen ever since. She is kind, always there for you when you need her. She is sweet person, firm yet understanding as a result of raising 4 kids, and 5 grandchildren. I should know, as I am one out of five of the grandchildren!

After suffering in an abusive relationship with her husband for many years, she escaped and started a restaurant named Vindu. She is an incredible cook, always knowing just the right amount of spice and flavor to add. Vindu was a carry out Indian food restaurant, popular with the locals of Cincinnati, OH, where she lived.

Prameela was very cooperative and helped me get through the interview. She struggled with talking about some of her past, as it brought bad memories. This is the first time that she has told her story to the world. I, for one, was very happy to hear it, and I learned things about my grandmother that I never knew before. Though her life was spiraling downhill when she was in an abusive relationship, she has recovered and has a good life full of people who love her.
