Life was nothing short of a fairy tale for Dr. Mini Vettical. She was well-accomplished, was a doctor, and had a loving husband and five wonderful children. That apart, she was a dancer and was into community service.
She is fondly remembered as an angel, selfless, humble, and kind person in loads of posts that flooded social media following her untimely death. The 52-year-old mother of five was driving her car home from work when a speeding motorcycle hit the car and Dr. Mini died on spot. The motorcyclist also died on the spot.
Dr. Mini happened to be a faculty member at Baylor University and worked primarily at Harris Health clinics. She was also a painter and dancer and was said “to have baked the most number of cakes” for her children.
She was known in her community for the immense love and compassion she shared with people around her and how she relentlessly put in work for the underprivileged by being actively involved in organizations like Pratham Houston and Houston Area Women’s Centre.
Her eldest Pooja Vettical says she can never be like her mom, but that her mother will always remain a role model for all of them. “She always made time for her most important job of all – being a mom,” said Pooja about her late mother.
Dr. Mini was born in Kuwait in 1970 and received her medical degree from the University of Texas. She specialised in internal medicine.
