This blog is being typed by Ranjan, at my request. I just could not resist the temptation.
A while ago I was on Skype chat with Grannymar who told me about today’s topic for the LBC Friday posts.
In India, a child’s paternal grandparents are called dada and dadi for grandfather and grandmother respectively. The maternal counterparts are nana and nani.
Our fellow LBC blogger Maria (Gaelikaa) has some grand nephews and nieces who call her Nani as that is the relationship for maternal grandmother/grandaunt.
I have decided to call her Nanimar. I therefore now have one Grannymar and one Nanimar in my world.
I leave it to you, my readers, to decide which one is the lesser of the evils.
