‘Everyday’ ………. Stories!

I had been reading Devdutt Pattanaik’s ‘7Secrets of Shiva’.

The book though very interesting, informative, and thought-provoking, leaves you somewhat drained because what you read, needs pondering over before assimilation!

You need something lighter to regain your normal faculties.

The best choice was before me – “Grandma’s bag of stories” by none other than Sudha Murthy.

The book was so interesting that I finished reading the entire book containing almost 21 short stories in less than 24 hours!

Almost all of the readers will concur with me that the present day young mothers and not so young grandmothers (No offence meant, normally Grandmothers cannot look as young as their daughters – though some of them do manage beautifully!) are very resourceful and can spin yarns. (I mean tell stories …..!)

On the few rare occasions, that you need help, this book will come in handy.

This is THE BOOK for you. Telling a story ‘Everyday’ can be a cake-walk.

Wonder why ‘every day’ is given prominence?

I will come clean. You will agree with me that wanting a good cup of strong coffee in the A/N is nothing abnormal. But the office canteens being what they are in Mumbai, you will need a genie to help you out in realising this simple wish of yours!

We all have heard it said so often that we generally firmly believe that nothing is impossible.

 While discussing the issue my friend remarked, “Every day, we discuss, but we do not have a solution.” That remark made me jump up with joy, since he had named the solution without realising it!

Three of us who were colleagues and also close friends rushed to the nearby shop, purchased a tin of ‘Everyday’ milk powder, ‘Sunrise’ instant coffee powder, sugar and an electric kettle and celebrated drinking  a nice coffee of our choice and liking.

The solutions to our problems may be staring at our faces, but we see them only when we apply our minds!

So happy story-telling young mothers …….. Sudhaji is always with you with enough stories in her “Grandma’s Bag of Stories!”
