Remembering Muthubai Manay

Varalakshmi Puja Day was special for the Nagesh Rao Manay family in Bangalore. For me it was the one day that we made sure we made this trip from Richmond Town to 596 “Scindia House”, near Sajjan Rao Circle, Vishveshwarapuram, for it was the day we celebrated my paternal grandmother “Amma” Muthubai’s birthday. She was born on Varalakshmi Puja Day in 1903 – the date would have been 7th August that year.
