Describe the friendship between Khushwant Singh and his grandmother.

Khushwant Singh’s grandmother was closely involved in bringing him up when the author lived with her in the village during his early life. She used to wake him up early in the morning. While bathing and dressing him, she sang her prayers, she hoped that the young boy would learn it by heart. She then gave him breakfast–a stale chapati with butter and sugar. Then, they would go together to the temple and school. While the author learnt his lesson, the grandmother would read holy books. They returned home together. A turning point came in their friendship when his parents called them to city. Although, they shared a room, she could not help him much. She hated music, science and western education. The common link of their friendship was gradually snapped.
