Pick up the nearest book and flip to page 29. What’s the first word that jumps off the page? Use this word as your springboard for inspiration. If you need a boost, Google the word and see what images appear, and then go from there.

Today’s twist: write the post in the form of a letter.

 I think this post was meant to be! Some cosmic connection or message has come through for I found an old letter written by my husband’s maternal grandmother or Nani-Ma on page 29 of the book… I just stared at it in disbelief for a while and then quickly took a picture of it.

Here’s a translation though I couldn’t decipher the last line much :

“My (grand) sons G… & G…,

Lots of blessings and love.

I wish for you many happy blessings and festivities and always remember to celebrate every festival with everyone.

My deepest wish is that you have a healthy and happy life by the grace of God. Always fulfil your duties and remember to only take for yourself after you’ve given unto others.

S… has been transferred to Nasik.

Your Nani-Ma


This one’s dedicated to the amazing lady who accepted me before any other elder in the family could have and taught me Punjabi songs. In loving memory of my sweet Nanima.
