Most people, when they reach a certain age, would be reluctant to change because they're used to doing things a certain way.
That is especially true when it comes to technology.
However, a senior citizen from Kerala, India didn’t want to be left behind with the digitalisation that is happening around her.
Tech savvy grandma
According to a report by Malay Mail
, Mary Matthews, who is 90 years old, has been using her laptop to stay up-to-date with current events.
Photos of Matthews using the laptop was shared by her grandson, Arun Thomas, on Reddit
and she instantly won hearts online.
“My grandmother, aged 90, is learning to use the laptop to read the online news.
“I think her willingness to accept and adapt to change is really appreciable,” he wrote.

Thomas also revealed that his family had stopped buying newspapers due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the savvy granny has been catching up on the latest news online ever since.
“The only way for her to stay in touch with current events is through the online news,” Thomas further wrote.
According to Thomas, his grandmother would usually start the day by going through the orbituary section before moving on to news.
Netizens have been flooding Thomas' post with words of encouragement.
Seriously, what a cool grandmother! We hope she will graduate from news to 9GAG soon.
