Both my Granny & Grandma are responsible for shaping the story-teller in me as they told me many real-life stories about people they had personally interacted with.
One story of my Granny was about a woman who loved to eat 'Pakoras' (fried snacks) a lot and every evening, she would buy lots of Pakoras from the neighborhood shop.
In another story, there was this man from an extremely rich family, who didn't like to work and just ate and slept and enjoyed the wealth!
The end-result for both these stories was the same as the woman's husband's money and the man's wealth and riches got finished and they got ruined and their life was in ruins...
I learnt many morals & lessons from my Granny's stories that influenced my life as I vowed to be judicious & money-conscious & not 'buy outside food frequently' or simply 'sit and eat', else as my Granny warned by citing an Odia proverb- "Bossi Khaile Noyi Baali Soray" (If you sit & eat, even the river's sand will be over!)
