    Ah ! Such a lovely post about your Baba. Very few are lucky to have memories with their grandparents and you are one of them☺️.

    awwww Happy Birthday Baba.

  3. Your sharing of memories of your Baba brought back a lot of memories of my own paternal grandfather, Parul. He was similarly well-educated, well-read, a diabetic and ruled his family with an iron hand and yet had such a soft touch with his grandchildren. People like them bring so many blessings for generations to come.

    Wow there’s nothing like the love between a grandparent and grandchild and this was so incredibly written, Parul. It bought a tear to my eye and made me thing of my Nan who passed a few years back. We must treasure those memories, and you have captured them beautifully. xxx

    Your love and admiration for your granddad shines through your words in this post! It is a blessing to have had the opportunity to learn and grow and shine in the company of such wonderful soul like him!

    How wonderful! My in-laws both turn 90 this year and I am amazed. My parents died in their 60s so they have been gone 30 + years. It is amazing what the older generation can teach us. I love your photograph and it will be something for you to treasure.

    I never had grandparents except for my Nani (my mama’s mother), being the youngest child of the family. Losing her was my first real encounter with death and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to forget what a great woman and grand parent she was …
    I’m sure your Baba is looking at you from somewhere today, smiling (and maybe even saving sweets for you!).

    Nice to have come across your blog!

  11. I’d say you’ve done pretty well, inculcating those values. Remembering them even today shows that they made a big impact on you… and that’s a good thing, right?
    P.S. Based on this post, I think you may like the newly released ‘Kapoor and Sons’ movie.

    Grandparents are so special..my paternal grandparents passed away even before I was born. My maternal grandfather passed away when I was 7 or 8 but I still remember the time spent with him. The one I miss the most is my mother’s mom, my Dida..She wasa great lady, a woman par excellence..she used to read every evening and she taught me that. I used to spend all my time with her. One comment isn’t enough to talk about her. I miss her!

    Grandparents are always special. And if you’re their favourite it’s the best feeling ever. While they might have been strict with our parents they have a whole different side for us.

  14. Vineeta says:

    Absolutely correct .i too miss him a lot . I was the one who always talked a lot with him inspite of being daughter_in-law.it is a real tribute on his birth anniversary that i really loved him as i loved my daddy.
