Looking for Love?

June 25, 2009

I will Miss you, Amma !


Deaths are cruel, they come as a slap from somewhere upstairs reminding us of its omnipresence. Deaths are ironic, they teaches us the toughest of the lesson in an extremely easy manner. Deaths are most awful of evils, they create a vacuum which nothing in this world can fulfill or replicate. Deaths are dull and dreary affairs, but they pave the ultimate path of meeting a great ordeal in life.


My grandmother expired last evening here in Delhi after being in ICU for the last three weeks. Apart from being a Diabetic and high BP patient, She was suffering from a kidney ailment for the last six months and in this time period, her dialysis frequency increased from once a week to thrice a week. As we all family members (me in a joint family, so the number is huge) wait for the dawn, and as all relatives plan to assemble in the morning, so that we can proceed for the funeral later in the afternoon, this cruel night just keep getting longer and darker.

With my fixed schedule of flying to Brisbane in another 8 days, the journey has now become even more arduous. Sigh !

This made me remember my grandma's death...even i used to call her Amma....i generally avoids funerals and death as that's somethings i just can't take.....but her silent face was something i can never forget!

i pray for her soul to rest in peace!

God bless you and your family
Take care

I am so sorry for the Loss Amit !!

May her soul rest in Peace. But such is life.

Sometimes it forces us to think that we become so helpless when it comes to saving our Loved ones from the cruel Claws of Death.

i thought of u and our funny lil chat last time as soon as i landed in delhi.. i'm sorry, i had no clue this was going to come.
like we discussed, sometime its better than to deal with all the pain she was already going through.
m sure, she'll find peace!
god bless and take care..
this too shall pass. :)
