A Wakeup Call...

Print Friendly and PDF

Thanks a lot for caring. I was away for a while and many of you were worried for me. I was a bit under the weather and also too sad to post for some time now.

I was with one of my friends trying to comfort her as much as I could as her husband is far away from her Now. He had just turned 40 and his exit from this earth was untimely and just so soon. I must say though he has lived is life to the fullest enjoying every moment of it. That's what one of his dearest friend so beautifully described saying what we could have done and achieved by the time we would be say in our 80's he did it by the time he was 40. Also he always had a wonderful smile on his face and his sense of humor was one which got people hooked onto him. Best of all was his love for food. He loved to cook as well. He was a person who could make friends with anybody and everybody. As we were grieving with his wife and amidst the tears we were exchanging notes and incidents about him ,there was laughter with the tears. Then his wife said so too -He would'nt want us to cry for him but to celebrate his life on this earth. A Remarkable human being, a caring and loving husband, a wonderful father to his 3 girls and a wonderful friend.

He taught us all one thing. It was like a wakeup call for us. Seize the moment and live for today and live like there's no tomorrow. Be kind and thoughtful today. Sometimes there is no tomorrow, just a memory of what yesterday was all about. Its almost 3 weeks now since we lost him but he will be missed and remembered forever.


  1. Dear Dolly
    Thats very sad indeed. But your expression and style of writing is full of life and hope. Death is inevitable it will happen...but we must live the way God had wished us to live...just look ahead and proceed, of course visit the past onece in awhile to capture good mements, the learnings from mistakes etc.
    I belive we are watched by our near and dear ones from the heaven and we must behave the way they want us to see here
    Have a nice weekend

  2. Ushnishda, Thanks for ur kind words. In fact I started to write this post just a day after I heard this news..and that post was like I was angry with god..and so many raw depressed and so numb, so confused and could'nt even function. Then when I was with my friend and decided to be useful to her, instead of focussing on myself. It made me so peaceful that I was able to atleast be with her .Good I did not post the earlier version..Yesterday when i went back to my post and changed it to the one above. I wanted it to be a tribute to a great human being and celebrate his life on earth...

  3. Very true... Kal kisne dekha hain.... Kal ka sochna chaahiye, par aajka sochne ke baad.... Aaj aise bano ki kal sab tumko yaad kare, tumaare liye fariyaad kare, aise na bano ki sab tume kal sochne se bhi khatraaye.....

    Haso aur sabko hasao...... Yahi zindagi hain... That is what is life all about.... KARNI!!!!!!
