My granny is a staunch follower of Brahma Kumaris. Brahma Kumaris is a religious foundation in which they teach people how to medicate and also provide knowledge to their followers about god and various other truths and lies of the universe. And the biggest myth which they tell their followers is that the world is going to end soon and only the followers of Brahma Kumaris would be left. Since my granny is a follower of the Brahma Kumaris, she also believes in this myth.
Well! My grandmother is a good story teller. She used to recite poems about cat, dogs, lions, prince, princess, about relationships and love. But one thing which she has always told me about this world actually not told me she has frightened me. She used to tell me and even today she tells me that the world would end soon. She told me so when I was a 4 year old kid. Now she is my granny so I ignored all the stories told by her about cats and dogs, instead I took her thought that the world would end soon very seriously. And you know what till my second standard I never used to study thinking that the world would end soon so there is no use of studying. But then when I landed in the third standard, I being an intelligent kid got to know that granny’s words are not going to be true soon. So, I should study instead of waiting for the world to end. These believe kept me scared for a hell number of years. Well! When I sit and think of it today I just laugh on how stupid I was!
One good habit which both my grandmothers have inculcated in me is related to prayers. One has always asked to wish good morning and good night to god, the other granny has always asked me to remember god at least ones in a day.
