About this deal

Though fictional, most of the stories have anecdotes from the author s personal life, especially her childhood.

After watching a couple of her videos, where she came across as a sincere person with good moral values, I was further keen on catching up with her writings and so decided to start with these short stories. It urges the reader to reconnect with his moral fiber through its stories on honesty, friendship, and patriotism. The laughter in this book will keep you entertained, and the author's life teachings are an added bonus.These stories make you laugh, cry, and most importantly, they instil in us a sense of responsibility and commitment toward the people in our society. There are many gripping stories about Sudha Murty's students, children as well as stories across India. How I Taught my Grandmother to Read and Other Stories” is her first book for children and is a collection of 24 short stories. Sudha Murthy has also authored The Day I Stopped Drinking Milk, Gently Falls the Bakula, Wise and Otherwise, and Old Man and His God.

I picked up this book, just for a break from usual reading , as short stories is something that i like to switch over to at times. The reader can learn loads from this simple living, high thinking teacher who has spent most of her life doing charitable work. Still I bought This book and started to read the book,every day I tread One story and every story taught me a lesson which I implemented in my daily life. This story book is showcasing the pure and warm relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter. After completing the book,I again wanted to revise all the lessons taught in the story-as I always do with other books-and Trust me Its double the fun reading the book twice.The language used is simple and this makes it easily understandable and approachable to young readers. The stories are about her teachers and her students, her friends and her family, her husband and her children, her early career as an engineer and her latter one as a teacher and social worker. Because in this country of 1 billion people we have heard some stories from childhood that have a lot of moral value.

In ‘A lesson in Ingratitude’, what she conveyed was a fair point, but I completely disagree with the way that point was put across.
