  1. That is an excellent tribute to a man of really good nature man and right values.Gone are the days when to be blessed with son was regarded as an asset.People these days cherish daughters for their affection..Nice of him to have showered his affection on you.
    I had visited Bhadravathi many times to the steel plant.
    Best wishes

      True KP 🙂 But there are still a few, who think otherwise about daughters! But I am glad, he didn't feel so 🙂
      Am sure you would have loved your visit to the quiet little place 🙂

  2. Oh wow! Well first of all you're lucky! I've never had grandpa around 🙁
    Never had someone elder in the family to guide me too. Well that's a beautiful thing to be disciplined and to be active. Truly a role model in your life 🙂

    That's a heart-felt writeup about your grandpa. You are lucky to have him around. I am reminded of my nanaji as I read this…he too was such a gentle soul, patient and almost godlike. Well done, Swathi!

  10. I've never seen my maternal grandpa ( he passed away when my mom was 6 years old), but I was fortunate to have my paternal grandpa with us for 26 years of my life. The lessons I've learnt from him are precious ! You just reminded me of him.
    Special appreciation to you, for having shared this piece of your life here:)

    WOW… this brought memories .. sadly both my grandpa's have passed away and they were both my role modles .. my Dadu was a city guy , high official who had people running around him and coule get anything down with the snap of this fingers .. and my nanu was entirely opposite very simple a farmer

    I am what I am because of all the love and affection showered upon me by them both

      Woah! That was such a contrast between both! I am sure you got to learn a lot about 2 different worlds from them 🙂 Grand parents really mould our lives a lot, isn't it?
