This is my maternal grandmother. She will be 81 this year. She is the most elegant, graceful woman I know and never has a bad thing to say about anyone. When we go to Bombay, she feeds us like we’ve never eaten before – and the food is always delicious. She knows how to text. She learnt how to use a computer and send emails and even has a FaceBook account! She is a little forgetful though, and still needs help sometimes. And just recently, all her grandchildren bought her a BlackBerry so we can message and send her pictures. And she’s got to grips with it quite well! She does her accounts every morning without a calculator. I asked her why – she said she needs to keep her brain ticking!
I took Vindoo to meet her this year – when he was six months old. Her first great-grandchild!
The picture below was taken in March when we were in Bombay (my mum organised a party to introduce Vindoo to everyone).
