Visiting Grandma

I made a quick trip to Kodaikanal last friday to see my granny and to visit our family temple. Spent some time chatting with my granny and performed a pooja at the temple. I couldn't visit the KMU as it was open only on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Mark has moved to his Farm House and hence would require more time to meet him. I missed an hour of rowing which I usually do whenever I visit Kodai as I had to rush to catch the train. Though it was only a few hours I could spend in Kodaikanal, it was a rejuvenating and a fulfilling trip. Here are some snaps I captured during the trip.

Shiva, I guess your description of your Grandma - "manifestation of strength, hardwork, love and compassion" might be suitable to most of the Grandmas of the previous generation. I don't think there will be such a vast number of adorable Grandmas in the generations to come.

Glad you made a trip and visited her. I missed seeing both my grannys being here. It hurts but life goes on.

Glad that I lived with her for 10 years. Heart-broken, when I had to leave her. Like you said - it hurts but life goes on!
