I picturised all your childhood experiences you shared. Reading about the relationship with your grandfather and instances of his affection. Rs 2000 for a car, haha — depicts the innocence of your childhood.
It also took me, to my childhood days. Writing & Posting letters, mangoes, playing with my grandpa, my grandmother’s pampering — she does it even now, at the age of 75, all sort of things.
I feel we are fortunate, to have our grandparent’s presence in our upbringing along with our parents. They plays a significant role in our attitude and future.
Thanks for sharing this, I smiled throughout reading this post.
