what changes in her behaviour were noticed a day before her death?(The  portrait ofa lady)

ANSWER- Just before the day grandmother died, a change came over her. She did not pray. she collected the women of the neighbourhood, took an old drum and started singing. Next morning, she was taken ill due to overstraining. the doctor said it was a mild fever and will go away, but the grandmother thought differently.
She told everyone that her end was near ans she would spend the last few living moments in prayer anD would not waste her time in talking to anyone. She lay peacefully in the bed praying and before anyone could suspect, her lips stopped moving. She passed away peacefully.

When the author returned from abroad, the grandmother collected the women of neighbourhood to celebrate his home - coming. She took a drum and started thumping it and singing. Her family persuaded her to stop to avoid over- straining. That was the first time she did not pray. And the following day she fell ill and died.

Changes that were noticed in her behaviour were that even if she thought that music had lewd associations she sang for hours. Also for the beginning of the chapter we notice her of praying and chanting all the time but during the time she sang and collected the women of her neighbourhood she even missed to pray.
