Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Fri Jan 27, 2012, 11:41 AM

My grandmother who is 84 years old, upon being told that i am marrying Lisa

said this " Priyanka has a fundamental right to live her life in the way that makes her happy".

My grandmother (well technically she is my grand-aunt but we address her as grandmother), was also the first woman judge on the Calcutta high courts and is a very accomplished woman. I have never someone so committed to a secular India and to the rights of women.

Anyhow, thought i should share this with my DU family

3. Your grandmother is right but she sure is ahead of her time

I wish the courts were packed with smart women and men, like her.

On a side note why is this the first time I am hearing about your marriage? I didn't get the memo.

8. That is so great. Not only the support, also the way she phrases it.

I assume she was a judge of great courage from those words.....
