My beautiful grandma is about 68 years old now. She is not that tall but not
short either, about five feet, three inches. She has dark brown sparkly eyes and
long dark hair that is getting lots of gray, but she wears it really proudly.
She keeps her hair tied back all the time. She loves wearing bright colored dresses
She likes to wear different shades of blue colored dresses, usually in
traditional clothes like saris. She loves small flowered patterns and sparkly borders
on her clothes.
I spent most of my childhood in grandma’s house and stayed with my grandma
until I started to go to 1st grade. I have a warm comfortable feeling whenever
I think about her. Growing up in my grandma’s house, I had lots of fun, she used
to let me do whatever I wanted do.
I miss her a lot because she is in Nepal right now. Last time I went to visit her was
two years before. She is as beautiful as when she was young. I have seen her old
days pictures. Every picture of her looks like movie stars. She has a beautiful
smile. My grandfather jokes with her a lot. Whenever he teases her she gets shy,
and she walks out form the room and tells my grandfather, “why do you tease me
front of my grand kids?”
When she laughs it feels like all the surrounding gets brightened, she has that
persona that everyone around her gets attracted by her.
I have lots of pleasant memories of her. She used to tell me story every night

It was hard to let ... to shrink the tumors on the brain. However, my grandma was too weak to withstand chemotherapy and radiation, that ... and I loved her very much. I spent a lot of time with her. What would I do if ...
before I went to bed. I remember, when she was telling story she used to say it in
deep airy voice like ”once upon a time there was a girl” and her voice went
deeper and deeper, then after a while, used to find out “oh! It is about me.”
She loves inviting family and friends all the time; Every festival, occasion and
holidays she invites all the family. She loves cooking, mostly she likes to bake and
cooks spicy food too. All our family love her food. She has lots of
collections of cooking books, and has her own secret recipes. She always says,
“I just cook food, because I want my family to enjoy and want to see them smile.”
I remember one time, our entire family gathered around in my grandma’s house.
We were celebrating festivals that day, she cooked all kinds of food .That time we
had a dog and a cat in my grandma’s house. After every body decided to eat we all
went to the kitchen . Our kitchen was kind of separate form other rooms and had an
access from outside too. As we were about to approach inside, my grandma started
screaming, all started running towards kitchen and noticed all the dishes and food
were all over on the floor. The funny part was that our dog and cat were
enjoying my grandma’s food too. My grandfather started joking, “look honey,
what happens when you cook delicious food, even your dog and cat can’t resist.”
That day I saw my grandma got very upset because she said, ”my grand kids are
She is still active on her daily life, goes for power walking daily but doesn’t like
to walk slowly, walks like a young twenty years old. She walks with
straight posture and her hands and feet move in the same motion left and right like
she is marching on the ground. She goes to Church almost every day. Lots of
friends are also active like my grandma. They go to movies often, gather around
and play cards sometimes. My grandma and her friends, know how to talk in
code words and have all kinds of nick names for each other. While she is playing
Francois Mauriac once said, "No love, no friendship can cross the path of our destiny without leaving some mark on it forever." In Shakespeare's play of Romeo and Juliet, it substantiates of the fact that the "star-crossed lovers" cannot surpass their obstacles of tormenting marks, but to endure it for their friendship and love. The ways of the relationship between Romeo and Juliet can be clearly ...
cards with her friends she loves to sing and hum .
she sings in a high pitch like a singer does, and doesn’t care about the surrounding.
All her grand kids love to be around her. We get spoiled whenever we go
to her house. She loves to comb and give massage on our hair.
The minute her soft hand touches, we just want to cuddle with her.
She puts my little cousin brother into her lap and talks like a baby,
She has one habit of saying, “I told you so….. I told you so” two times, because of
that we make fun of her all the time, but she never seems to mind, just smiles with
her beautiful face and pats our back.
She always likes to think positive in every moment of her life. She is one of my
role models. I want to be strong and active like her when I get to her age.
