One may safely conclude that this rich harvest of stories, How I Taught My Grandmother and Other Stories is marked by fidelity to truth and beauty. Like a proverbial Indian sage, she overpowers the readers with her convincing view of life. All the stories are morally elevating and told with catholicity of stance towards life. The picture of grandmother, the pathetic story her teacher, her husband, Nayana Murthy's initial trials and financial stringency to come up in life, her variegated experiences in her classroom and the rest of her stories - 35 in all - make us wonder at the tender human being amalgamating all the diverse experiences
in all the stories she harks back to past and takes us aloft with her. Each story has a liberal dose of morality about it and she deftly makes it an inalienable part of the story. In fact, they stories are hallowed in reality, is the impression one would get, even if you randomly take up a story. The cover picture is attractive and price is reasonably placed.I recommend this for all for young and old.

Flipping through Flipkart pages I found the name of the book to be very intriguing. I happened to mention this to my eleven year old daughter, who is an ardent reader, and she casually told me that she has read it at the school library and its nice. So that's how I decided to buy it. And I can't even begin to mention as to how glad I'm that I bought it. Each chapter is an experience shared, so beautifully and so effortlessly. I kept a pencil with me and have been underlining interesting sayings which look like casual sentences but are a teaching in themselves. Thank you Mrs. Murthy for sharing these experiences with us, and that too so amazingly.
