(i) determined
The grandmother was indomitable and sincere to learn the Kannada alphabet. She set Saraswati Pooja as the deadline to accomplish her resolution. “Avva was a wonderful student” as the narrator tells in the story. She not just used to do her homework with all her sincerity but even used to read, repeat, write and recite. She was determined to be independent and wanted to be literate. She always regretted not being educated and thus with the help of her granddaughter she learnt to read and write Kannada alphabet and even received the novel Kashi Yatre as a reward from her granddaughter.
