Describe how the common bond of friendship was broken when the narrator’s parents called them in the city.

The narrator and his grandmother had developed a unique relationship in the village. He was completely dependent on her. But soon, a turning point came in their relationship. His parents called them to the city. He went to an English school by bus. The grandmother’s role was now marginalized. She couldn’t accompany him to school as she did in the village. Nor could she help him in his studies. She had no knowledge of English and Science. She hated music. She was very sad that they gave lessons in music at the school. She rarely talked to him after that. The narrator went to university. It separated them. They now saw less of each other. In the end, she accepted her loneliness quietly. She didn’t show any emotion when he left for abroad. So she accepted this separation without any complaints or regrets.
