In some parts of India there is a funny way of adressing a grandmother to a child..They say Grandmother is your first Girlfriend and the intention behind it is unlimited fun
Well with this article i am going to explain a story of a grandson for whom his grandmother was his first girl frn,best frn, mother, critic and much more!!
It all started on 29 June 1993 the day i was born. I was the first grandson of the family and everyone seemed happy but more happy was my grandmother as a year ago she had lost one of her daughter( younger to my mom) and decided to keep a nick name to me after her.
My parents were working professional and due to this most of my childhood was spent with my granny that is when she became my first love my first mother. I was a 3 month old baby when she had to travel out of station and guess what. A 3 month old child went with his granny leaving his parents in his hometown for a span of one month.Isn’t that a miracle? Happens only when there is true love and care
Everything was going well and then the unexpected happened. My father expired when i was 8 years old and that is when the golden time of this grandson and Granny relation started.They say when the father dies the relation with those related to him also dies and that is what exactly happened with me.
Me and mom started staying with my granny and family. My education was taken care by my uncles however the upbringing was taken care by my granny as my mom had no option other than to work.
My entire childhood was spent with my granny.I indeed troubled her sometimes for Cricket Bats, Balls however i learnt my life best lessons by means of her life Stories, The Historic tales and many more.
From a 3 month old baby to an Engineer with 2 job offers and a handful of dreams this was a gift my granny gave me and i cannot give back what she has given to me. I wish to not give back too !
Everything was going well again and me being a small town boy was working in a metro city to pursue my ams and biggest dream to take my granny to my home in the big city and give her all the happiness she deserves.
It was on 29th August i was super tired due to office work so i thought will go to sleep early but i was not at ease and my mind and heart was sending signals that something bad is going to happen.You have such vibes somedays and you cant avoid them.
I wanted to call my family but it was late night and i did not want them to get tensed so i just tried to calm myself by walking around balcony and sipping some coffee but my heart was not ready to compromise.
At 4am my phone rang and it was my mom.My heart just pondered and my fear turned true. My Grandmother was no more and for a moment i was in utter shock that is when my mind went into memory lane.
Last week i visited my hometown and usually my granny waves me from the door when i am returning to my work however this time she came down the stairs till the Vehicle kissed me and said take care.Probably she knew that we were meeting for the last time.
Coming back to the present i was 400kms far from my hometown and the only thing i wanted at that time was to have her last visit and ask Why?Why when everything was going fine and i was about to live my dreams my everything was taken away from me? I cried my heart infront of her and that was the last time i cried for her departure because from that day she is always with me and in my heart always
As they say every human has to die one day and i am sure she has got the best place in heaven for her deeds and i am forever debtful for what she has given to me. She has given me my life!
My day does not go without thanking her for what she has given to me.I just want to say wherever you are i always love you and you will always be my first girlfriend
