GRANDPARENTS

My mother came to  stay with her parents during her 4th month of pregnancy and she never went back. 

My parents got divorced legally after few years. So I was raised at my mom's parent's place. Everything about their separation is a huge story which I may not or may be able to share later.

Yesterday I was thinking of a word beginning from 'G',  I remembered my late Grandmother( my mom's mother). Cant remember much about my grandfather as he passed away when I was little.

For the first time in my entire life, I realized am thinking only about my maternal side what about my paternal grandparents. 


I don't have a slightest clue about my fathers parent's, what they did, where they lived , how they looked because I never seen them in real nor in pictures. They never met me, I have never spoke to them, I just don't know a thing about them. I wanted to ask my mother about them, but as usual I choose not too. For reasons best known to me !


P.S: I am SORRY if I sound rude. But I just wrote these lines with the exact thought expressed, it was just a question in my mind which lasted for  few minutes, never arised before nor will later.

 BUT I don't feel hurt about not knowing them, I am not upset nor the thought that they never tried to meet me saddens me. It's something I have accepted in my childhood days, so no void, no feelings attached. I thank you all for reading my life, showering your love and concern for me :) I cannot tell you what it means to me !

  8. Two different types of pains.. One of not wanting to be with, and one of not knowing...

  13. It must have been tough for your mom.If there had been no endeavour from your dad's side to see you,it is good to leave it at that.Even when parents are not divorced,I have found children gravitate more to mom's relatives than dad's.I don't know why.

  16. Life is full of pain why add them. on the other hand, you can not avoid thinking about your grandparents or Father whatever they did. I share your tears, pains and I pray that let the unbearable pain not bother you any more or let it be lessened.

  17. Ananya, we are so similar in certain aspects and even I am vague about my paternal grandparents, as of maternal I have very faint memories!!

  24. Just go on with life.Later ,you may bump into someone from your father's side & learn about paternal grandparents.As someone has rightly said ,some things are better kept away.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have never known my grandparents, either from my father's side or mother's side. All of them died even before I was born. So I would say you are lucky at least you knew one of your grand parents. See it's all about perspective :)

  26. Perhaps in the future you might, when you are ready. My cousins went to meet their father, from whom their mother seperated while they were quite young, after they became parents themselves

    ReplyDelete
  27. I agree with you , if they really wanted to meet you they could have made an effort to meet you.
    Your inner strength shines through.

  28. I'm sorry to hear that you don't know your paternal side of the family. I hope they think of you with longing and affection.

  29. hopped in from the A-Z challenge.....and what i found was a heartfelt post.... Ananya, life is like a giant jigsaw puzzle, and we really don't know how the pieces fit into our lives and when we will find the right piece....but we will get what we are destined to get, how, when and where, leave it to the Master....

  30. When people choose not to talk about their personal lives, you have chosen a different path to be open...You are a courageous lady.. Is your mom also reading these ?

  33. I'm also a product of a broken family and I've had questions. I started asking them but it stirred up too much drama so I dropped it.

  34. Sometimes its good to let go the untouched past!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think it is only better that you don't know. There must be a reason why you don't. I know not knowing hurts, I also have many unanswered questions in my life but like you I have also accepted few things in life. Somethings are just not meant to be. Sometimes I wish it could all be perfect :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. You are better off not asking questions that will end up hurting you. It's good that you've made peace with them.

  39. I am glad you are giving your mom the space by not asking anything about your grandparents... btw grandparents are the relationship I have no clue about, before my birth, my Nana, Nani, Dada, Dadi passed away... I have no idea how i feels to be a grandson...

  40. This just proves more how sensible and brave you have grown into. :)

  41. I may not be right if I say I understand what you mean of feel. I would just like say that sometimes its better to have not known someone if they were never going to be alongside you. Knowing them may would have given an opening for expectations or may be not, but still the void would have come to the fore and would have made it more difficult for you to accept the facts and move on.

    You have also shown a very mature approach by not asking your mom the difficult questions and let her be in her space. more power to you girl, god bless you :)

  44. There are things best left unknown and unexplored. Coming to my Grandparents I never had much feeling for them, I never felt any real love towards them. That's I guess because I was born Numb to emotions to a wide set of people.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I agree not knowing is the best thing!
    The simplicity in your thoughts is touching.

  46. In your case, I guess it's good that you are unattached.

  47. I respect your thoughts and how you feel. But what if someday you meet them?

  48. The thought was conveyed perfectly.
    Isn't that thought still bothering you?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Maybe it was for your own good. Who knows whether they accepted you with open arms or perhaps disdain?
