Yesterday, my mother’s elder sister, Mrs. Vijaya Ramesh had called. I could notice a slight shiver in her voice. “What is the matter?? Is everything okay?”, I asked. “Your grandmother is not well. Her condition seems to be critical and is admitted in the hospital. I am rushing to Madurai immediately, to see her”, she replied.
My eyes were filled with tears. I was so upset that I could not sleep at night. I began recollecting memories from the past.
During childhood, I liked spending much of my summer vacation with my grandparents. I was particularly close to my grandmother, and was pampered by her. she cooked really well, and was an expert at preparing idly and chutney. Her rasam tasted amazing. She used to prepare special sweets and snacks for me. Words can hardly describe all the love and affection that she showed.
Grandma, I hope you get well soon and come back to your normal health.
