How I Taught My Grandmother to Read and Other Stories

When the author was a girl of about twelve, she used to stay in a village in North Karnataka with her grandparents. Since the transport system was not very good in those days, they used to get the morning newspaper not until the afternoon. The weekly magazine used to come in a day late. All of them would wait eagerly for the bus, which arrived with the newspapers, weekly magazine and the post.

At that time, Triveni was a very popular writer in the Kannada language and all the village people would wait eagerly for the weekly magazine ‘Karmaveera’, where one of her novel Kashi Yatre was appearing as a serial. It was the story of an old lady and her earnest desire to go to Kashi or Banares or Varanasi, where she wished to worship Lord Vishweshwara to attain the ultimate blessings. But finally, the old lady sacrifices all her savings for the marriage of a young, poor girl, who falls in love but there was no money for her wedding so she gave her all her savings.
