And Ajji started her story Thus began every story in this book. Stories that are simple, downright honest, yet those that evoke deep emotions and convey strong messages. Stories that smell like the earth after the first downpour of the season. Stories that are the colours of nature - shades of green, blue, and brown.

And Ajji started her story Thus began every story in this book. Stories that are simple, downright honest, yet those that evoke deep emotions and convey strong messages.
Stories that smell like the earth after the first downpour of the season. Stories that are the colours of nature - shades of green, blue, and brown. Stories that remind you of your grandparents and the fun, carefree times you shared with them.
I have read her earlier works and those of you who have also read her other books, would know what I say. While the stories are rooted to the Indian culture, they have a universal charm. Ajji or the Grandma in the stories, enchants her grandchildren, Raghu, Meenu, Anand, and Krishna, with a wonderful repertoire of stories, when they visit her house in Shiggaon for their summer holidays.
In the late afternoons, the children would huddle around her to hear what story she had in store for them each day. A lesson in kindness from the story of Ravi and the old, thirsty man in Doctor, Doctor, a lesson in true happiness from the story of King Amrit and the people of his kingdom in Who was the Happiest of Them All? The illustrations by the inimitable Priya Kurian bring the stories to life; the expressive faces of each character bringing you that much closer to liking the story.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who can read. The stories also make perfect bed-time stories to be read aloud to children who are yet to learn the art of reading.
Book Review: Grandma’s Bag of Stories, by Sudha Murty
Posted on by Timesofbook. The stories in this book are based on the stories which Murty heard in her childhood. Grandma and grandpa, or Ajji and Ajja as they are typically known, are eagerly waiting for their seven grandchildren to arrive. She even rushed through her bath and quickly put on a cotton sari, just so that she could wait on the veranda.
