Down memory lane

Today my youngest  grand daughter has gone to appear for the M.Sc.admission test  for I.I.T. She came to me to seek my blessings. Oh God! How time flies.I am feeling very nostalgic. Even my grand children have reached a stage when they are completing their studies and have entered their youth.In the dusk of my life I am reminded of so many things which are now lying secure in the womb of eternity.On occassions like this they come gushing to the forefront and immerse me completely in their  fold...................
             It was the year 1994. I had retired and had to leave  Government  accommodation.We shifted to our own house. In the beginning my children were not happy to shift, because of the distance from their work place.  After we shifted, the children  loved the new house, their own  home!
The younger grand daughter was born  here. She has grown into a young  lady with a mind and thoughts of her own. Our elder grand daughter was very fond of her sister.Unlike other  siblings, they never quarrel. Even as grown ups, they are the best of friends.
Friends or sisters
R was a cute baby. She looked like a little fairy. Her naughty looks and  sweet actions are still etched firmly in our mind. As a child she had a very sharp memory.Initially she was admitted in a play school, near our residence. She got admission in Mater Dei School without any difficulty.She was very popular in school.She was the president of the Table Tennis team of the school. She participated in debates, extempore speech competitions.She was an all rounder.She obtained 94 % marks in Sr. Sec. exam. She loved to dance. In  her college she was elected vice president of the choreo society.The elder one is also crazy for dancing. The elder one, also R, is studying in USA. The younger one also wants to study abroad.When both of them are together they dance day and night.  It is  generally  seen that siblings of the same sex always  quarrel, but both my  grand daughters  never even argue with each other.
I pray to God that they always stay blessed.

  5. It is a mixed feeling when children grow up ...happy because they are independant and go in search of their dreams, sad because they leave home. Your love for your grand daughters shines through this post. Stay blessed ma'am.
