Comment Thank you, Nathmal ji. Yes, we always had good traditions, simple yet very happy ones. To be with grandparents was ever a dream. Things have changed, still the fragrance is not lost. Thank you for your emotional response.

Comment Thank you, Seshu. A very usual thing when we were children. Very nostalgic, we search for those frail legs even today.

Comment You have remembered me old days of my childhood,when grandchildren listened stories with curiosity from their grandmother.She used to tell them
various stories in every night with proud.But today the situation is totally changed.We have no time to ask grandma for her usual things.T.V, Computer game,mobiles,cartoon serials have taken place instead of Grandma.So there
is no need of grandmother for these types of work.Some parents don't want
to keep their children near grandparents.A long series of "sanskars" has been closed.So to press grandma's aching feet has become a very far and
past history.What happened to India ? All the traditions and cultures have
been disappeared very fast.We are running after money and copying the
western culture .We hate our culture.We like to follow the life style of foreign
ers.We have no time for anyone.Today's grandma is as well as she was before.We have need to take care of her.We should give some time to serve
her,otherwise her aching feet will desire earnestly to press or serve.Thank you for good emotions for grandma.Will that era come when she feels very
happy & blesses to her family members by heart ? Thanks for nice lines.
