my GRANDPARENTS!!!...MY SOUL!!

just yesterday my grandfather called to tell me about an article in the news paper about a letter to a grandfather ... he called and asked me to read it .. and i was supposed to call him back but me in my stupid self obsessed life forgot ... so this is more than an apology it is to say thank you .... :)
Ammu and Thatha is how they are known to not only me but all of my friends who've known them as well .... the two people who have seen me from the stages of a pupa to unfurling my wings waiting to be a woman ... the two people who have never nudged or judged the pupa .... they have just stood by watched and smiled (beamed rather) with pride ...
all grandparents are special .... well mine are too ... they are brilliant ...i mean who else would readily take a 4 yr old kid who loved crayons into their house and teach her every nursery rhyme and good manner known to man ..... who else would take the efforts to make sure a kid had a birthday party like no other ... who else would never make a kid feel like her mom and dad was away..... who else would wake you up in the morning and help you brush your teeth buckle your shoe keep all your books ready and come for every parents meet possible ...... who else would make you sit on the table and do your homework and only then let you go out to play .....who else would make your favourite food items as a surprise JUST LIKE THAT ....... who else would make you laugh with funny songs and weird poems ...... who else would have stories about everything to everyone ..... who else would teach you maths and make sure you learnt it from the basics (heheh i still am bad at maths though).... who else would support you when mom was screaming at you .. who else would buy you orange sticks for every crossword puzzle they complete(my count is 675..:)..... who else would know you arent in a good mood by just looking at you ... who else would talk about you to every one in the colony ..... who else would bring an extra pair of clothes because they know you would spill .... who else would let you have moon light dinners and make noodles because that was the menu ..... who else would open up and let you sleep whenever even though the servant came only once .... who else would always force you to eat some biscuits or buy a thums up from the shop ... who else would always bring you back a gift if they went out of station ... and who else would make you understand your wrong by talking and treating you like an adult .............
believe me when i say this only grandparents will do or can do all of the above ... mine have done it with me .... and i wouldnt have been half the person i am if it wasnt for my two advice giving tv watching story telling grandparents .. who always told me i was good ... and cried when i hurt myself .... who prayed for me .. and laughed with me .... they have come every step of the way ...i love you ammu and thaths .... i might not say it much .. but i do .... thank you for .... everyyyyyyythiiiinggg ....... yours always AISHU PANNI KUTTY :)

Hey Sweet Bums...
Its nice to see you dedicate this post for your Grandparents...I too had mine till I was 6 yrs, couldn't get to experience what u have but im sure my niece n nephew are enjoying this experience wid theirs (my mum n dad). So all that I am now is by Gods grace n prayers of my fellow believers..N I know for sure the amount of patience, wisdom, luv n care they have at that age is simply amazing....nice to see u get them from your Grandparents... God bless your Ammu n Thaths... You take care... Luv...
