how old is muttajji

Muttajji, who was the twins’ mother’s mother’s mother, lived in Mysore with Ajji, who was the twins’ mother’s mother. No one actually knew when Muttajji’s birthday was; but Ajji had always celebrated it on the Makara Sankranthi holiday.

“Amma, will there be a cake?” asked Putti. “A big, spongy cake with pink icing and a rose on top?”
“Naah,” said Putta. “Old people don’t have birthday cakes. And 200 candleswon’t fit on any cake.”
“Muttajji isn’t 200 years old, silly,” said Putti. “How old is Muttajji, Amma?”
Amma smiled. “Why don’t you ask her when we get there?”
