Pragathi’s presentation during her
Grandparents’ 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebrations on May 5th, 2018
in Redmond, Washington.
My dear grandma was born on January
7, 1948 in Telangana, India. Laxmikantharao and Padmabai were her parents.
grandma has a large family. She has 6 brothers and 3 sisters, for a total of 10
children. J My grandma is the second of sisters, 6th overall.
grandma’s dad was an Engineer. He worked in the development of large irrigation
projects including Nagarjunasagar and Pochampad.
grandma’s mother took care of the entire family and focused on the upbringing
up of the children.
grandma studied until Higher Secondary School in those days. She remembers her
teachers well, they were very nice but strict.
marriage, my grandma moved from the city of Nizamabad to live with my grandpa
in rural villages in Warangal. While she lost some material comforts, she did
not complain and embraced the new life. Together they focused on education of
their three children – my dear aunts Aparna and Anupama and my dad Ajay. They
also guided the school children and had a happy life.
from taking care of all family, my grandma’s hobbies include – knitting,
reading and especially preparing delicious treats 😊
I have created this spot on the web to record some of the letters written by my parents to us, their children. Their letters / email communications have been a blend of many things derived from their experiences and from their extensive reading and interactions with people around them.
Though the content of the blog is purely personal messages relating to the writers and their wards, I believe they may be of use to others. I also believe that there is no thick boundary line between individual and social thinking. And it may also be not uncommon that social thinking becomes individual thinking and vice-versa.
I greatly appreciate various artists whose work I am making use of in making this blog.
