"How They Killed My Grandmother"
Last month, Buzzfeed published a memoir-style essay by Chandra Ganguly MFAW '18 called "How They Killed My Grandmother."
In the essay, Ganguly chronicles the life and death of her widowed grandmother. She writes, "[my grandmother] was widowed almost 25 years before she died herself. I remember the first days of her widowhood. I remember how they took away her colours...They gave her a white sari – its whiteness like a shroud she would wear for the rest of her life."
Ganguly is a contributing writer for Buzzfeed.
