Grandmother's Saree Read Count : 106

Category : Poems

Sub Category : N/A
It was the cocoon of warmth that wrapped me as a baby

It was the veil of mystery that shrouded the world when we played 'luka chipi'

It was the veil of safety that protected the naughty toddler from many a beating

It was the best storyteller and singer 
It rocked me to sleep every night 

It was the best toy and the best shelter

It was the one to pampered me
The one to make delicacies just for me
The one to make excuses for me when I couldn't 

Yet it was the fire piller that guided me
It was the scale of truth that taught me 
The value of good over bad

It taught me manners as well as maths
Emotions as well as English
It thought me to love and dream
It introduced me to a new nation called 'imagination' and gotta say it is the best one yet
It taught me something new everyday
It was my safety net 
It was my climbing rope

It was the first saree that I wore
And then  
I saw the similarities 
It had forged between me and my grandmother
