Product description


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. --vupputuri pala prasada rao Sep 8, 2011

Actually,I read the story 'How I Taught My grandmother' in my English Textbook of Class10. Then I thought to buy this book,thinking that this book might have the full story 'How I Taught My grandmother'.But then I noticed It said 'and other stories'. Still I bought This book and started to read the book,every day I tread One story and every story taught me a lesson which I implemented in my daily life. After completing the book,I again wanted to revise all the lessons taught in the story-as I always do with other books-and Trust me Its double the fun reading the book twice. SO friends,do see right or left,just buy the book --Rohit Shekhawat Feb 15, 2015

very nice way of story telling...i simply loved each and every story. if you have any younger ones at house, they'll b delighted to listen these ...they're rich in moral values too... this book is like a treasure for generations to come... --deepak elavarthi Jan 9, 2012
