Well, the grey generation is a real gem to society as they have experience, knowledge, wisdom affection and also they are kind. I am lucky enough, that I know various old people who are good examples of society. Today, I would like to talk about an old person whom, not only I know but also admire him.’
He is none other than my grandfather I know him from my birth. He is a very charismatic personality as he attracts people very easily with his charm. In my locality, everyone respects him for his great service in the army and he was also part of the Kargil War.
I have seen people respecting him from the depth of their hearts. Moreover, he was a part of an NGO, which had worked for the betterment and upliftment of the underprivileged people. Additionally, in this materialistic society, such kind of generous and benevolent personalities are hard to find because now he is in the ’90s but still whenever some want any help or guidance he always comes first.
The reason, I admire him the most is due to his unconditional love and affection which he has showered to all his children and grandchildren whenever, I spend time with him, I always learn something new. Hence, I consider myself to be very lucky I really hope god bless him with good health and long life.
