Narayaniamma aka Naaniamma with her children - my grandmother included. At their home - the ancestral - in Mahe, Kerala. 1950s.

1950's family portrait
I never met Naaniamma but I have met most of her children. Only recently I found out that there was one more daughter. I'm guessing she died young; neither granny nor Dad ever mentioned her.

The children would spread out as adults - between Tellicherry, Mumbai, Indo - China and France. Some would eventually return to Tellicherry.

Returning home. Or maybe not.
