Ntuppuppakkoranendarnnu (My Grandad Had an Elephant) is a short novel by Vaikom Muhammad Basheer published in 1951. It is one of the most famous among his works. The story is woven around the love of Nissar Ahmed for Kunjuppathumma. But the dominant character is Kunjupathumma's mother who gloats over the glory that was, and the central theme is the conflict between the value she upholds and those of the educated, forward-looking Nissar Ahmed. The story is filled with pleasant humour and anecdotes from Muslim religious lore.

The title refers to people boasting of the past glories, their "grandfather's elephant", to hide their present shortcomings.
