Last evening,v went 2 a betrothal ceremony of my cousin sister's daughter.she is studying for MS in usa n met a Gujarati boy there.he also is studying there.2day morning,v attended a marriage of our neighbors grandchild.
in the evening ,v learnt about a tragedy- a death of a 47 yr old family man.he had a massive heart attack.he had just returned from shopping with his wife n only daughter as it is the daughter's b'day on 6th jan.he felt uneasy - some burning sensation n was given eno .he said he would lie down n when just minutes later,he was not getting up.everything was done 2 revive him but in vain.his wife is a lecturer in a local college n his daughter is appearing for 10th std. exams in march,2009 - a very intelligent child.his parents r also there-his mom was lamenting that instead of taking her,god had taken him.his dad was in a state of shock.actually all were in a state of shock.i went there with a neighbor but i just kept quiet- i was at a loss of words.the home is well furnished with things all filled up - a contented house. but now tragedy has stuck- so whatever v do for home ,4 us,amounts 2 nothing in death.v hav 2 leave everything as it is n leave when the call comes.i had never thought that after 2 happy events, i will witness such a tragedy- all 3 events in a span of just 36 hours !what will his wife do ? she has a job but then u get used 2 somebody's presence n that is not there ,similarly about the daughter.parents of course r dumbstruck-his mom had just returned from a pilgrimage n she was inquiring from visitors about her sins which led god 2 punish them thus.
i think ,i can't write any more -no i am not crying but yes,there is sadness n everything looks irrelevant-job,house,possessions,etc.v shud forever only nurture relationships.maybe i am learning something.
