In this modern era, the young generation often does not prefer to have conversations with older people. However, once in a blue moon, it happens when they engage in conversation. Speaking for myself, I usually love to converse with older people, such as my grandparents or other individuals, because it not only enhances my knowledge but also improves my communication skills. Here, I would like to shed some light on an interesting conversation I had with Mrs. Ramandeep Kaur.
Actually, She is a 62-year-old woman whom I met at a bosom friend’s home on her birthday. Surprisingly, she is my friend’s grandmother. Her grandmother really likes baking, and I am also in the same lane because I enjoy it a lot.
On that day, she made a delicious cake that everyone liked so much. At the end of the party, I asked her about cooking skills, and she shared her background story, which was really interesting. She told me that when she was in her teenage years, she started learning this skill and described the barriers she faced while learning it. She shared the roller coaster ride of her culinary journey with me. In a very polite way, she answered all of my questions.
Towards the end of our conversation, she generously gave me some tips, tricks, and her secret recipes so that I could also learn. Her kind nature impressed me a lot, and I did not feel bored while talking with her.
Whenever I face any problem in cooking, without any hesitation, I prefer to call her, and by the grace of God, she always resolves them. I think, along with having skilled hands in cooking, she also has a beautiful heart. I really want to have more and more conversations with her because the time I spent with her was unforgettable. If I get the same opportunity in my future life, then I will never miss the boat to have another interesting conversation with an older person.
