Goodbye Eid! Eidees recived= $0, Servings of Beef consumed = a whole cow, stunning saree worn= one.
Goodbye Nanu (my grandmother).....who is going back to visit Bangladesh. We'd like to think she will return when her papers come through, but I can tell she's thinking ' sure, when Bangladesh freezes over!'.
She has jotted down details of my occupation to create a 'biodata' for when she will 'find me a suitable boy' in bangladesh - a real maulana(religious) type with a long beard and downcast eyes.
lol . Yes, I do love her to bits :D
In optimistic times, I like to believe I have inherited her social skills and wit.....though she is more pure-of-heart (can you believe she gave up tea, when at 18, she learned that her prospective in-laws didn't follow the 'Tea- thrice a day' custom?!!! ultimate sacrifice in my books. hehe). I'm gonna miss her something terrible.
