How I Taught My Grandmother To Read And Other Stories
How I Taught My Grandmother To Read And Other Stories
Description
From the Jacket:

What do you do when your grandmother asks you to teach her the alphabet? Or the President of India takes you on a train ride with him? Or a teacher gives you more marks than you deserve?

There are just some of the questions you will find answered in its delightful collection of stories recounting real-life incidents from the life of Sudha Murty, teacher, social worker and best-selling writer. There is the engaging story about one of her students who frequently played truant from school, the account of how her mother's advice to save money came in handy when she wanted to help her husband start a software company, and the heartwarming tale of the promise she made and fulfilled-to her grandfather, to ensure that her little village library would always be well supplied with books.

Funny, spirited and inspiring, each of these stories teaches a valuable lesson about the importance of doing what you believe is right and having the courage to realize your dreams.

Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
