Life goes on

It is said that the world is divided between those who have parents who are alive, and those who dont. I have just become the latter.

My mother passed away on sunday morning. The phone call which s dreaded by everyone, who has family and elderly relatives in  far away places. The early morning phone call. The feelig of helplessnes, and panic before as well as after hearng the news.

Someone once said that the death of your parents, makes you suddenly grow up.Otherwise in middle age you are their child. Once they are gone, you suddenly feel middle aged. Next in line, to be grand parent who slips away from the lives of their grand chlren.

Mymother was ill, and more or less confined to bed and needed looking after. We do have servants but my yonger sister is the hero, who supervised their care to the end.

Losing your parents closes off a chapter of your life, you are no ones child. Am slowly trying to come to terms with my loss but it is taking time. Am going to go to India in the middle of May, for the final ceremony of her passing. And am hoping I can brng my sister with me for a short break here. She deserves a break and am hoping spending sometime with each other we will lay our differences to rest. And may be it will be a new begining for us.

Wish me Luck!
