THIS 90 YEAR OLD GRANDMA WANTS TO HOST GOOGLE CEO, SUNDAR PICHAI, AT HER FARM STAY.

Lakshmi Paati, the 90 year old grandmother, along with her 71 year old daughter, Kasthuri, run a small, cozy farmstay. They are first time entrepreneurs and this is their very first business they have started. They have always been house wives living under the shadow of their husbands. This is the first time they are earning money on their own.

Their initiative is called Vaksana Farm Stay which has two farm cottages with a third one on its way. It is situated in the middle of their 13 acre organic, permaculture farm in rural Tamilnadu. Their village is about 2.5 hours drive from Chennai.

Thanks to their warm hospitality and their authentic village vegetarian cuisine, Vaksana Farm Stay is highly rated on review sites.

Lakshmi Paati (Paati means grandmother in Tamil) is deeply fascinated by Sundar Pichai, the Google CEO. Even though she is technologically challenged, she is smitten by Sundar’s rise to global tech stardom from a humble childhood in erstwhile Madras. She reads a lot about him and watched all his interviews on YouTube.

Lakshmi Paati has a bucket-list. On top of it is to one day host Sundar Pichai at her farm stay and cook for him her now famous recipe with her own hands. Her signature dishes are Urunda Kuzhambu, and Vatha Kozhambu which are finger-licking delicious. Guests rave about the taste and she wants Sundar Pichai to taste her food. She wants to cook and serve him her favourite dishes.

Seeing this wish come true will absolutely bring joy to this genial old lady.

When young guests at the farmstay come to seek her blessings, she always blesses them with the words, “May you become as successful as Sundar Pichai”. The guests are always pleasantly surprised by the deep knowledge this 90 year old village Paati has about the Google CEO.

You can help make Lakshmi Paati’s wish come true by sharing this story on your social network. This small gesture will mean a lot to this energetic, ever-smiling, nonagenarian.

At 89 & 71, Amazing Grandmas Run a Gorgeous, Successful Farm Stay With Fresh Food

An enchanting farm stay in Tamil Nadu called Pico is run by two senior citizens โ€” Laxmi and Kasthuri. With organic farm fresh vegetables, they also offer modern amenities like WiFi.

For several years, Laxmi Ammal and Kasthuri Sivaraman (a mother-daughter duo) lacked the confidence of being independent. Both of them grew up in conservative households where they did everything their parents told them to do.

There, women were not encouraged to think independently and to a certain extent discouraged from expressing their opinions. Moreover, while Laxmi (89) studied only till Class 3, Kasthuri (71) completed Class 7 in a Tamil-medium school. After marriage, they followed their husbandsโ€™ orders.

It can be daunting for some to make decisions and take action when they are habituated to getting directions from others.

My husband and few of my friends had a two day stay at Vaksana farms. We stayed at Pico which was very comfortable for all our needs. Vaksana is the perfect place for your weekend plans. The host Mr Kiruba and his parents were the sweetest. Shoutout to Kiruba Anna, His wife, Parents and Patti for showing us around and being great hosts. They were able to guide us around the farm and for any requirements outside the farm. Would definitely recommend to others.

Wonderful and peaceful stay.. food was served with pure love ๐Ÿ’• amazing hospitality which is not attained even in any resorts. Peace for mind and soul. Stayed only for a day because of the unavailability. Looking forward to go there again. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰ Lastly meeting the grandmother and getting her blessings was tremendous. Felt really nice when she kept her hand on my son and gave him blessings to study well and grow. Hopefully her blessings come true. Very touching that was. โค๏ธ
