    You have found your calling as a writer!This one is truly heart touching. Loved the analogy of the mixer which describes the pain of loneliness!
    Reminding me my own Nani , who was v well educated ,environmentally conscious, had the warmest heart and would educate us about eating local food and saving money. You touched that cord!

      Thanks Ruchi, I am glad to be the story teller as long as the stories touch cords.. !! Thank you for extremely thoughtful feedbacks ?

    This is how it goes: when I asked nani what would she want me to convey to you regarding this post- this is what she said- tu rahen de, mein aappe likh daiyaan gi!( forget it, I’ll write myself!) I managed to hide my shock.
    I think that sums it all. There’s never a dull moment with her and
    There’s so much to learn from her.

    Having said that, Ridhi, thank you for reviving old memories and reminding us that joy lies in those small moments shared with loved ones.
    God bless you.
    (Nani is trying hard to control her tears)

    Beautifully penned down ridhima! I didn’t get a chance to see any of my grandparents except my nani very briefly but I get a lot of love from Saurabh’s grandmom now. She’s a sweetheart- and I make sure i go see her as often as I can. Also Amazing on how nani at that age has managed to use the touch screen. Well done nani ?

      I remember your Nani Hem, she was so cuddly and you were so ecstatic about spending time with her and would keep telling me to touch her arms to feel how soft she was ?? Good on your part to share your love with Saurabh’s grandmother, I know you are very fond of her !! Thanks for the feedback ?
