    I’m glad you directed me towards this story of yours. Your Nani seemed to have been a very inspirational women, and yes, you do have those genes in you! I love your comment about your Nani’s make-up too. My grandmother loved her lipstick, blush, mascara, and nice perfume. I loved that she let me try on her make-up when I would visit her. Thanks for sharing your story!

    Thank you for sharing this, Parul. Grandparents are such a blessing. I only knew my Maternal Grandmother. I am so glad you have her as part of your growing up!

    I could sense the pride in those words as I read each and every line of this post, Parul. The house was real beautiful and the pic of your naani says that she was a hyper active woman. Kudos.

    Parul, this is such a beautiful post. There’s a common thread in all the grandparents’ stories and we all can relate to. The unconditional love , life struggles and an uncanny sense of satisfaction, at the end of it all, despite of all the hardships.
    I wrote about my dadi in that post, but my Nani is very similar to yours in her life. She is uneducated but a successful business owner and exudes confidence !
    For the love of grandparents, cheers !

    So many memories here, Parul. You have shared nice pics. Your Naani rocks! All our Naanis are/were such superwomen.
    We are so blessed.
