5. Talk about a time when you travelled with an old person
- When and Where? What was the conversation you had? How you felt about it?
There have been many instances in life when I travelled with my grandparents, but here I would like to talk about a time when I travelled with my friend Sonia’s grandmother. Actually, it was Sonia’s cousins wedding and she had invited me also. All her other family members went by car, but Sonia, her grandmother and I went by train. We went by Chandigarh express, which starts at 7 pm and reaches Chandigarh at 9.30 pm. I had met her grandmother many times, but that was the time I realised how lively she was. Her name is Parkash Kaur. She is in her early seventies. She has grey hair and wrinkled skin, but looks very beautiful. All through the journey we kept chatting with each other. She has excellent culinary skills, and as I am also fond of cooking so I started asking her about her recipes. She shared many recipes and many cookery tips with me. I made quite a few notes in my cell phone. Sonia told me that the aroma coming from her grandmother’s kitchen is irresistible and that she has magic in her hands. The two hours journey seemed to pass in two minutes. The train was also very comfortable. Sonia’s brother had come to the station to receive us. So, this was the time I travelled with an old person.
