A Tribute to my Grandmother

Happy Belated New Year and all the best for 2012 to all my readers!

A lot of people raise an eyebrow when I tell them that I have a history of polygamy in my family (in fact two generations ago). One thing that I would really love to do is, over tea/ coffee, have a conversation with my late grandfather where I try to understand what it took for him to marry more than one wives, and how he could have possibly split his love amongst all four wives. I suppose when we are reunited in the afterlife, I will have a chance to have this conversation with him after all. But this article is not about my grandfather, it is about the woman that shaped my life before she even knew I would exist, the woman who even decades after her passing, people remember her deeds and personality with a broad smile on their faces, it’s about the pillar of our extended family!
