I miss u thatha


I miss u thatha....
Right from the instant i was born, u ve known me, seen me growing up..I remember those times when i used to play with ur shaven head...wen u used to carry us for evening walks..those times wen u used to return from work wearing a white shirt white veshti carrying a black bag under ur arms. We used to await ur arrival outside the flat and u used to buy my favorite halwa...those times wen u used to cum up 3 floors to rams flat to celebrate anna's and ur birthday on 31st august...those times wen u used to teach me to brush and the way u used to clean up the bathrooms wenever i cum for a stay...those times wen all of us used to fite for sleeping next to u on the bed and wen we used to drink water only from ur jug...numerous aavani avittam and diwali celebrations..those times wen u wud tel me stories of ur meet with gandhiji...

And suddenly u became immobile...got confined to a room...brought in so much of a gap between us...we spent less time with each other...u started asking me if i am free so that u can cure ur boredom by narrating ur past adventures...u got frustrated of ur sickness and ur immobility and now u lie before me...physically lifeless....with the same charming look that brought smiles on our face all those years...

U taught me one great thing...Life s really short...There's really no use crying for ur luved ones after their life if u cant be with them through their life... I really repent for all those hurting words tat i may have uttered which u mite have carried with u till the end...the past 6 yrs wen i did not spend enough time for u.. I swear i wouldn do this to another person...never hurt anyone knowingly...i ll learn to spend time for my luved ones... i ll do all that i can to make others happy...

If anyone's reading this...pls take it to ur heart...whether u like them or not...spend time for ur ppl...ur grandpa grandma mom dad aunt uncle cousins friends....cos u surely know that they ve been a part of ur evergreen memories...the least u can do is to be a part of their's...

Luv u thatha...u ll live forever in our memories.....

By,
All of ur ppl...
