Human relationships are special

Most of our days are monotonous and dull as we are too busy to come out of our daily schedule. We are becoming more and more practical, career and gadget oriented day by day. Thus we are losing the liveliness inside each of us. Breaking free from the clasps of our electronic world and building meaningful relationships with our close ones in the real world is a dire necessity to get back to our peppy selves. We must feel that it’s high time to break the cage of this robotic world and instead get down to the roots and connect in person, by feeling and sharing real emotions in the real world! Here I’ll be narrating about a memorable day when I spent time with a lively lady I love- my grandmother.

I had got a fresh job after passing out of the engineering college. Right from childhood I was very close to grandma and she too left no chances to pamper me at every stage. She had high hopes on me too. So, after I procured my first salary I decided to spend it first on my beloved granny. Moreover her health was deteriorating quite fast. I did not want to lose out a lifetime opportunity of spending an entire day with her, trying few new things together and revisiting some old lanes which were close to her heart.

In her youth, grandma was a movie buff. So, I planned our itinerary such that it began with a movie. I knew her choices and unfortunately those could not be found in any cinema hall. Only option left was hiring the video CD of an old black and white hit movie which could be played inside house. Thus our program started indoor. Surprisingly granny had teeth. I arranged for popcorn and finger chips. In between movie sequences I whistled to create a flamboyant ambience for her. The fun started when she joined me too adding up to the sprightliness!

Lunch could easily be done at home but she was not a regular restaurant-eater. I wanted her to taste outside foods. The way she carried herself into a posh restaurant was unbelievable. Grandma enjoyed the food very much. My only problem started when she started bargaining against the food bill. People of elder generation believe in bargaining, be it in vegetable market or supermarket! She expressed extreme dissatisfaction towards me when I tried to hold back and manage the situation. Fortunately the manager understood the problem and overall there was no much problem.

Granny was a great animal lover. I took her to the zoo. She was almost like a kid while spotting tiger, lion, zebra, giraffe, hippo, rhino, different birds, reptiles etc. By evening we left the zoo and visited a famous temple to let her join the evening ritual. By late evening we returned home as taking food outside twice a day was not permissible at granny’s age.

That day I discovered the joy of #MagicOfWarmth after a long time. I realised that age is nothing but a state of mind and happiness is everywhere waiting for us to be picked up. Human relationships are special and we must value them. We must preserve the zippy individual in us!
