It is high time we acknowledge and celebrate the special place grandmothers have in Indian families and psyche! Further, the stories in the book Dadi Nani: Memories of Our Grandmothers shows that our grandmothers were often the backbone of our families, and often played a critical role in guiding our families through difficult times.
The day would be used as a platform to bring together the entire family, with a special focus on grandmothers. It would be a grass-roots driven, family-oriented event which all Indians can participate because everyone has a grandmother. Fun and frolic would be the flavour of the day!
