I do not remember his face.
But my mom says he was very happy when I was born. And that when I was 2 or 3 years old, he would take me around on his shoulder.
We have two photos of him. In one photo, he is sitting in his army dress along with other army men. In the second photo, he is seen along with his two brothers.
I am 34 now. And as I said above, I don’t remember his face. I don’t remember him walking me around on his shoulder. And I think I don’t miss his absence. But very occasionally, I do think about him. Very occasionally.
I consider myself a bit unlucky since I don’t have any memory of me playing with any of the two sets of my grand parents. So I really have no idea about the love and affection you get from your grand parents. My granny (my father’s mother) is alive, but unfortunately, I didn’t have much of a chance to spend time with her.
But, I am happy. I am happy that Arjun is so very lucky in this sense. He’s got both sets of his grand parents. And they all love him a lot. And that’s a great thing for me.
