Remembering a great human being...

People will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did, but
people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou

Until a couple of years back, most of my weekends in Bangalore involved discussing the week's happenings over a cup of tea with my Grand dad. Aging but young at heart, he was a wonderful human being - a model citizen, a true family man and a great role model for generations to follow. Be it the stories about his time in the Indian Army or be it the advice he gave, there was an aura of sincerity around him that I really miss now. I haven't come across another gentleman as praiseworthy as him. I miss having him around but am glad I have his blessings.I aspire to live my life at least a tad bit like this great man did.

Thanks for all the great times, Achan.
