SHORT SUMMARY OF " HOW I TAUGHT MY GRANDMOTHER TO READ "

EXPERT ANSWER

Dear student,

Here is a summary of the story “How I taught my Grandmother to Read”:
 
This story talks about a girl who stayed with her grandparents in Karnataka. Her grandmother was very passionate about a story Kashi Yatre which used to appear on the weekly magazine. The girl used to read out the story to her every week, as her grandmother didn’t know how to read or write. One day, the girl left the house to attend a marriage somewhere else. The magazine used to arrive and the grandmother, unable to read the content, used to rub her hands on the pictures, feeling hopeless and dependant on her granddaughter. Once the girl came back, her grandmother insisted her to teach her how to read and write. Within a very short period of time, she was successful and able to read and write. Her greatest sense of satisfaction began when she started reading the novel of the story Kashi Yatre on her own.
 
Hope you find this summary satisfying!
 
Regards
