All of us, particularly children, enjoy listening to stories. When I think back on my childhood, I recall my grandmother's stories. In our house, we would use a coal burner to keep warm in winter. All the children used to gather around the stove late at night to keep themselves warm. In the summer, we would meet on the cots stretched out in the courtyard of the house. This was when grandmothers (both paternal and maternal) would tell us stories. They used to have a great memory for stories. We would fall asleep while listening to the story and if a story was left unfinished, there would be a request to narrate it again the next day. This was the period when TV did not exist. Mobile phones were nowhere in the picture; in fact, landline phones were also not commonly found in households.
