The white-haired women ---- Grandma is small article written by my friend Simple Women Radha as 'A Tribute' to the newest generation of people as they still value and respect their grandparents especially their grandma's for being in their lives ..... for the longest period.So let start with it.
The white-haired women ---- Grandma
We all call GRANDMA by different names like Aaaji ,Patti ,Dadi ,Granny and etc...... way . we often mock around her saying that "granny you are too bad and boring us with her advices and sermons" .We allways considered the white hair ,fragile frame women as traditional and who doesn't not know how to move on with others as they live in their old world isn't it so? Guys hmm even we find it a little awkward to call our friend home for party afraid off her as if she is' Dayan'.
But we often forget a thing that she is also a human being and not a lump to be taunted every one and then for being their in our lives. As they have crossed through several stages in life to come to this level and we not even crossed one stage of life properly without others help we start being like we are 'ustad ' we don't think that we will one day also become old like them instead we think we are every green young .I have seen most of young parents they snap their grandmas(Gm) as if their (GM) don't know what is current trend in every senses especially after child birth .They never trust their (GM) as they don't want to or their scared to trust and try out their Nuskas as they think it will will harm the child . But then ...... they trust the doctors who give medicines for small small problem like cold or cough or stomach pain caused by Acidity ,gas or indigestion which isn't good for the young child .
As for them trusting their (GM) ghar ka Nuskas is like playing with fire .Much before their Granny gives anything they will asks several question that their mothers find it difficult to calm both of them
Grandma's relationship with us is unique and whether proof.Meaning Despite several fights with them and criticism against her we love her and if any outsider speaks to them rudely you snap them back .....and give them a lesson of their life .Seeing you defend her she (Grandma ) sheds tears of joy and pours her heart to you and showers unconditional love on you .No one on this planet earth can given you so much love like Grandma not even your Gf,Husband,Wife or finance can give you ,that much love she gives as they do Dekhava of love apart from some exceptional people .
Once when our relationship becomes strong we start sharing things that we also don't share with parents until one day when your best friend and your mentor of life IE Grandma leaves you and becomes a star amongst the other stars .You start feeling bad and start missing her as you became like parched soil which requires water for its development and once when you will feeling like that and then to rejuvenate yourself you will start remembering each and every word of grandma and soak it into your heart .As She was the backbone of the family like the agriculture which is backbone of India and like head of family. SHE is also SUPREME HEAD OF THE FAMILY WITH WHOM FAMILY PROPHECY WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED .So once when you realize this as you grow up you will take parents very well and you will teach their grandchildren to be good to them but today's generation Grand Parents are not that strict like our generation Grandma .Can't help it.
Only one thing I want Y'all to remember that never make them feel like they are burden on you as I seen some many people keeping their own mother in homes so that their children future will not disturbed but this according to me is not done as Grandma are dam good to be with .They are smarter and wiser than all others in a family.So be compassionate and kind towards them.
