My Maternal Grandmother, My Velliammachy, Aleyamma Mathan  

enter When my Grandmother, my Velliammachy, Aleyamma Mathan, got married, she was barely fifteen.

Growing up in the Parsonage with her parents and siblings, my Velliammachy grew into a lively tomboy, her mother despaired over. There was not a tree around the house that she had not climbed, alongside her brothers, with her skirt tucked securely between her legs, making it easier to scale up or down. Often to heights that her brothers could not reach. She wielded a sling shot better than her brothers could and brought down fruits from trees faster than her brothers did. She could whistle louder than her brothers. Fish better than her brothers. Anything her brothers did, she could do better. Not in the slightest bit domesticated, she was happiest playing or working outside. She did not enjoy slaving over the kitchen stove, nor did the needle and thread enthrall her . Left to herself, she would never have learned cooking, if she had not been tied up, in the kitchen, on a regular basis.

She seemed to be in a hurry all the time, running, rather than walking sedately, as her mother would have wanted her to. She looked impishly at the world, with eyes that danced with mischief.
