Why it is not "Meraa dada nadhi mein kadaa hain"?

There is nothing wrong with 'Meraa dada nadhi mein kadaa hai' grammatically but we generally treat words referring to people elder than yourself or in respectable positions (like दादा, दादी, पिता, गुरु etc) as plural as a show of respect. So, 'मेरा दादा नदी में खड़ा है' would be regarded as rude.
