#TogetherOnline: Hold your mom’s hand as she discovers a new world, says Google

Have you ever sat down when you were at home and had your parents call out to you and say to you randomly ‘I love you’? Those three words are words we love hearing from our parents ‘I Love you Beta/Beti’ (daughter/son).  I know my parents have and each time they do it reminds me how lucky we are to have parents who care. Being an Indian-American Born we sometimes forget our roots our memories when we were young. This commercial which Google India put together put me in tears as it allows us to not only have our parents connected to the world of digital but also a way to connect more with them and teach them a new world.
