She is very affectionate and caring. We, her grand children, are attached to her more than to our parents. She is never cross with us. Her love for us is her passion. But she is equally generous to other children. My father and my uncle always seek her advice in all social matters.
She is the most respected lady in our colony. Ladies, young and old, come to her for advice. Sometimes they bring their problems. In the afternoon many women flock around her. They feel flattered in doing her a little service. Sometimes she tells them her own experiences. They listen to her with respect.
When we were little kids, our grandmother used to be such a source of joy! We used to wait eagerly for night because in the night, all of us snuggled near her and then she would tell us a story. In this way, we learnt some great stories of our scriptures like Mahabharat, Ramayan, Panchtantra etc.
Like all old women, she has some orthodox habits but unlike other old women, she has a surprising quality to change with the times. Nobody forces her, but she herself has changed many of her superstitious habits. We all are thankful to God for such a loving grandmother.
