August 10,2005 . I woke up with a shocking news.My Grandmother passed away at her home town. A rude reality to believe. It hurts even more that am at a distant land,and am left all alone to handle the grief by myself. I was told that she was fine, playing with her grandsons(My little cousins) till 6 PM IST ,but by 7 pm she was gone..Acute myocardial infarction took her life. She lived her life till 85 years of age.
She got married at an early age, lost her husband within years of marriage (my Mom was 10 years old when her father passed away),yet she raised her 5 children single handed,educated them and got them settled in life.
I should share my recent memories of my paati.I still remember the day how happy she was when i handed over my first salary to her and got her a saree. She finds pride in telling everyone that i did the hearing evaluation for her and prescribed a hearing aid,and my brother is her "family doctor". Even during my recent trip to India, she prepared my favorite dishes and fed me.She prepared sambar podi for me,and i still have that pack labelled "paati sambar podi".
Let me end here before i breakdown again. All i could do is just pray for her.
May her soul rest in peace.
