  8. 8. His obsession<br />If there was one thing that Pranav could not live without, it was his white and silky “Shawl”<br />As the story goes “And everywhere that Pranav went, his shawl was sure to go”<br />Gifted to him as a baby, he could not go to sleep without clutching it and rubbing it over his mouth. <br />If Pranav felt sleepy (when in 214), whatever be the time of day, his parents / grandparents would have to rush to his house …<br />…to fetch his “security blanket”, for a comfortable sleep !<br />

He would sit upstairs in 214 and order them to run down and get him his “large” cup of tea !<br />After drinking his tea, he’d call them up again, and ask them to run down …<br />… to keep his empty cup in the sink ! <br />
