Usha Menon who blogs at Kuch Khatta Kuch Meetha
In her own words, Usha Menon has this to say:
Hi,I am 79 years old,eldest in this group and perhaps old enough to be a grand mom to some of my “friends”. I was born, as the saying goes “with a silver silver spoon in my mouth” in Delhi.My father was an Engineer.
Even in those days(1940), I was sent to Convent of Jesus of Mary,New Delhi. On his transfer from Delhi, I was sent to hostel in Vasanta School, Banaras. I had college education in Delhi and Dehra Dun.,M.A.;Bed. as my quaiifications. I went for a teaching job in a govt school. Education was expanding and very few girls were qualified, so in six years I got promoted as a Principal. i reached the highest post as Addl. Director of Edu.Director Edu. was reserved for I.A.S. After my retirement, I pursued my hobbies, which took a back seat during my working years.
I am married to a Keralite.( I am a Punjabi) I have two children.DIL is Keralite and son in law, a Punjabi. I have four grand children. I am very fond of reading and writing. I started blogging,becuse of my love for writing. I write any thing which comes to mind. I am leading a peaceful and relaxed retired life.
Here is Usha’s recent post: Gratitude
Blogging away at the ripe age of 79 is no mean feat and I, personally, am in awe of Ms. Menon! I’m pretty sure you all share my sentiments too!
So, do pop over and say ‘Hi’ when you can. Mrs. Menon would love to hear what you have to say.
Have a good week, people.
