Our families with Pedatha

We used to call our lovely Amayee as grandmother. She's very lovely, intelligient and humble to share the great sufferings of our family and relatives. She's highly devoted to God and she subscribes and love to read some magazines about God. She loves to visit temples often. She lived in huge mansions in coimbatore whereas we stay in Dindigul, Madurai district of Tamil Nadu. Whenever we visit her, she cooks delicate meals for us. We always enjoy her cooking. I feel every meals taste great from every grandmother. Whenever we get sick, she took good care of us and she protect us from sickness by cooking herbs in rasam and making some natural ingredients like ayurvedic. We always listen to her words and advise and also follow her principles. We also love to listen her old stories of our great grandparents.
I stayed with her when I was schooling in Coimbatore. She used to hold my hand and hugged me when I slept with her daily and also put the blanket on me.
After I give birth to Jaihari, I stayed with my family for 6 months. She also came to stay with us. We had a great time with her. She loved Jaihari very much and he hugged her whenever he slept with her. I dont have camera in hand and so I badly missed this chance. Our heart broke when my father departed his journey to the world. She consoled us and again stayed 3 more months with us. She often come to stay with us in every 3 months. She gives affection, warmth and love not only to us but also to others who are known to her. She always loved to invite our guests or others who are known to her to have meals just before they leave her house. Nowadays, I've not seen anyone invites like her. So, I am very proud of her.

Slowly, she battled with her sickness due to her old age. She was worried about her health. She laughed at me and told every family that I wish her to live till Jaihari grow up, marries and give birth to babies. My mom helped her lot by taking good care of her, feeding her and stayed with her often. She wants me to visit her after coming from US.

Last year, on August 14th 2008, I was very happy to do shopping with my friend. Karthik heard her sad news and didnt want me know during the day. After getting back home, he slowly asked me to sit calmly, I feel frozen and trembled with fear.God broke our heart that she's no more. I screamed, cried lot and phoned to my Mom that she too cried very badly. I was in deep sorrow for not even making up to see her last wish. She lived long enough to see the history of our 3 generations. But her mansion is emptied with no happiness, no peace and no joy. Without her, there's no fun at all in her mansion.My heart is pounded with cup of tears when I write about her in my blog. I feel inside that she knows what I wrote about her in my blog. We really missed her lot and also her last smiles.
I am not lucky enough to be in their loop of the above picture. I'll send my picture later but unfortunatley, I left my picture with Pedatha in my home(India). These pictures are send
by my elder cousin sister, Malar staying in a very beautiful house in California.
