Jethu's Visit 2016 Feb-March :: Anecdotes Jethu shared on Saturday Feb 27th

When he was around 4 years of age, he used to stay at 33/2 Beadon Street (Bholanath Dham) with his parents. Mammusona (Jethu's great great grandmother and my great great great grandmother) used to fetch the little Jethu from school. Once they were back home, Mammusona would maker her great great grandson sit in the kitchen while she would peel ripe mangoes and make slices of them. Then she would sprinkle sugar on those slices generously and give them to the child to eat along with a glass of hot thick milk to drink. And, she would ask the child how school had been that day.
Years later, when Jethu had narrated this to some of his Hispanic friends, an elderly lady said that no where in the world will a woman serve a man like this, these days. tongue emoticon. According to Jethu, that was a pathetic thing to say about a 4-year-old getting pampered by his great great grandmother.

Jethu has written a thorough list of what all he has eaten in Kolkata since Friday night, to the girls and to Dotti - to which Dotti has replied that "you will be waited upon in this way only in India"
