On life…and learning

My father. My friend…

with 4 comments

Dad departed for the heavenly abode on August 13, 2012. A true fighter that he was; fought the battle with his illness every day of last three-&-half-years. And fought it bravely…

32 years of my life came visiting me in these last seven days, memories galore! So much to recollect, so much to say…And I know in my heart, I would not be able to do justice with words to my feeling of what he was to me.

As a child, I had read a book called The Railway Child, wherein Edith Nesbit, the author, while talking about fathers wrote, “… a father who was just perfect – never cross, never unjust, and always ready for a game.”

That is how I would remember my father, always…

Dear Baba, have a great life in heaven. I will celebrate your life by living up to the values you instilled in me, by simply following them yourself all through your life.

I will miss you…

  2. A pious soul, who lived his life for others. May his soul rest in peace and see his progeny prosper here on earth.
    Our profound regards to the departed soul, who was blessed with a son like Rishi Raj Gupta.

  4. I remember how fondly you spoke about your father during some of our conversations many years ago. He shall always be there through the values instilled in you.
