The new day was just born. It was 12:35 am, the 12th of August 2014. I was awaken by the repeated beeping of my cell phone. In my half sleep state I could see many familiar numbers calling me; I rubbed my eyes to catch the clear view, yeah! My family member started ringing me one after another. I rejected everyone’s call for I already knew why and what they wanted to say. Slowly tears started oozing out of my eyes and for a while my heart stopped beating. I was left in a state with No-emotion. “Om Mani Padmae Hung” I whispered to myself. It was that moment when my uncle breathed his last. The midnight of 12th August 2014 I lost my dearest uncle.
A million words wouldn’t bring you back, I know because I have tried them…. Neither would a million tears, I know because I have cried them. This is the uncertainty of the so called life. A month ago we shared the same food from a pot and our talk over a cup of tea, these memories are killing me. I still don’t believe you are no more!
Those were the days, when I used to irritate and play prank around you. For I wasn’t the best niece you had but I did my best to be the one. You are that jovial man I came across in my life. I have many beautiful moments with you and each one is dear to my heart. Your last moments weren’t that colorful. I could feel the pain you had. We did our best to safe you. I hope you must be happy with what has happened. At this age, you left us and I feel contended since you have lived enough. Deep inside, the empty space you created in my heart, no one can replace. Each and every second of my life I will miss your absence for you are the most loved uncle I ever had. Your demise is a chapter of my life; it taught me to be stronger, braver and more responsible and for now all I could do is pray for your peaceful journey towards your next birth. Rest in peace!!!
