Murty’s philanthropist does not shy away from including autobiographical parts in his story. Her memories have been muffled down to stories. Throughout the lockdown, she kept herself quite occupied. During the lockdown, she wanted kids to understand how to support the elderly, so she wrote stories about it. Murty is no inborn storyteller. Rather, she gets her inspiration from her childhood. According to her, there was no power or phones in my village when she was growing up, so people spent their time chatting. Her grandparents have told me countless stories, and she likes sharing them and henceforth the book “Grandmas Bag of Stories.”
Anand, Krishna, Raghu, and Meena arrive at their grandparents’ house in Shiggaon at the opening of the story. They then continue to do what youngsters do best: seek out someone with whom to play. They become friends with the neighborhood kids and have a great time with them. They relish every moment of their vacation, from going on a pleasant picnic to touring the weekly market. Ajja and Ajji (grandfather and grandmother in Kannada) are overjoyed, and Ajji is busy preparing wonderful refreshments for the kids. Finally, their favorite part arrives: everyone (7 children) gathers around Ajji as she opens her large bag of stories. She relates tales about kings and cheaters, monkeys, mice bears, onions, princes, princesses, scorpions, lost riches, and a whole lot more.
In the backyards of grandparents, a summer fantasy blossoms. Every one of her stories has a valuable life lesson for the kids. Her tales of rice and wheat emphasize the need for food grains in times of crisis, such as the lockdown. The Magic Beans educates us to not be greedy, The Goddess of Luck shows the significance of good karma, The Mouse that Became a Mouse prepares us to accept what has been given to us, A Word of Honour teaches one to keep one’s word, and A Ship on the Land illuminates one on how talents and skills are more important than appearance and The Greatest Cure of All discusses how a sickness sweeps the globe every hundred years, the risks it poses, and how cleanliness is the best medicine.

Morals, lessons, and teachings are woven into the stories but they are not preachy or overbearing. In her stories, Murty gives youngsters life lessons that are infused with our customs.

She carefully observes the dramatic contrast with the western school of thought, in which stories are more akin to bedtime stories.

Apart from the stories themselves, there is a running story of cousins visiting their village in the summer and hanging with their grandparents while enjoying a pleasant summer vacation. It was just as enjoyable to read about the cousins’ exploits as it was to read the stories. The book also includes several full-page drawings that complement the story.
