Here‘s what happened…. and here is how it must have happened…
I know its been a couple of days… But i kept at it with granpa on what he was upto and how the tubelight fell.. [the fixture was nailed into the cupboard and now its just sitting on top, cos we have put in place a new holder and tube!!! ]
Every morning granpa comes to the room, keeps flowers for various Gods n Goddess[s] out here[ pictures, photos, idols spread across the room… 🙁 ]
Me: But thatha u’ve been doing this forever.. why did the tube fall that morning?
He: I dont know…. i kept flowers and took off my hand and then thud, all was falling..
[not really believing him.. cos he is known to try some antics at times..hehehe.. plus the tube light is above our height.. ]
Me: hmm… did u try moving the picture or something?
He:[with a bit of hesitation] no, dint try moving it, but thot i’ll clean the place of all dried flowers and so moved my hand around….
Me: Aah, i see
Uncle: But dad, how did you even reach there?
He: just stretched and tried…. that is when the tube moved and came down like that… wonder how the nail came off[his way of deflecting ….;)]
Me: ok ok…. forget it now.. lets find an electrician and get him to put the light on the wall!!!!
He: its ok now,no.. leave it….
Me and uncle: Hmfph!!! [ no point, lets just go ahead do it…. ]
Oh,well.. the adventures of life in grandparents house.. continues!!!!
