| | I will be reading the stories of the members here and really amazed to know how many things will happen in everyone's life.
I am from Bangalore, India and definetely have lot of cultural difference and also the difference in the way of life.
But I want to share few of the things/ scenes from a Middle Class Indian family... Hope you people will find it interesting to read and know.
First thing in this effort is I want to introduce My Grand Mother to you all..... She Died at her 92 years of age in the eyar 2003..... and I am very lucky and blessed to have the love and affection of my Grand Mother. Even my Son had his share of his love from her for about 5 years.....
She came in to my life after my marriage, as she was my Fathers-in-law's Maternal Aunt ( Maternal Aunt means My FIL's father's sister). So my relationship started with her because of my marriage.
She has not gone to any school nor have any proper education but he used to read and write Kannada our local language and she used to tell entire BHAGAVADGITA a sacred book for Hindu's. that was really amazing... she got married to her Uncle ( In the sense her mothers brother) at her 10 yers of age before she know what a marriage is...... her uncle was then about 30 years.... In fact in thoe days that was the practice in India. Just imagine a tender girl of 10 years marrying a man of 30 and went to her inlaws house. ( If you have fallowed her in laws house is nothing but her granny's house) Very interesting isn't it? In fact in those days CHILD MARRIAGE was prevailing in India which was a biggest social problem and may gilrs had become victim of that social evil. My grand mother is one of them...... So she learned all the house hold work at her in law's place. Even though she got married at 10 year her actual married life begin at 15 or 16 once she attained her puberty........That was the practice then.... I am taling about 80 to 85 years back......
Her husband has some health problem... and he died at his 40 year!!!!!!!!! just imagine she would have lived with him only for 4 to 5 years and that too serving his illness...... Even for today my blood will boil when I know about how the society was treating women in those days....... they were discriminated like hell...... so many times I asked her about her married life but she didn't say any thing...... then her life continued....... that is much more interesting and worth knowing....... I will let you know on that next... .....
So, let me know are you interested to know further?
