August was a very difficult month for us. My grandmother passed away after being ill for around two months. And that is why we were all left shocked how it all happened so quickly. I miss her so much everyday. I have grown up with her and remember the everyday moments with her and how she cared about us and prompted us to do the right thing at all times. Her “desi nuskhe” have always been so helpful. I was having a stomach ache after dinner a few days ago and I remembered she used to ask me to have a little ajwain (carrom seeds). I did, and I felt much better. Its like I can imagine her saying all these things in her ohh so sharp tone. Everything is so fresh in mind. After her death, everything seemed so meaningless. But eventually as days passed by I realised, she has not really left us, only her body has vanished. She didn’t die, she is living in our memories and our present moments.
How can you live after you die?
We all question life and death after someone close to us passes away. We realise that we have been running after the materialistic things in life and forgot to build memories and leave our impressions on our loved ones. No one will care about which car you owned or how big your house was ! Because in the end everything will be left behind. What will actually matter is how many lives you touched while you were alive. These are the people who will keep you alive in their memories after you die.
Food for thought
So, take a moment, a deep breath and think, who will cry when you die? Have you made real friends? Are you there for your loved ones when they are in need? Do you spend enough time with your family members? Have you made an effort to make your spouse feel special? when was last time you said “I love you” to your loved ones? We are all so busy living that we forget to actual live in the moment. Lets take out time to show gratitude to God for the beautiful life we have and the things we have that we wished and prayed for. Make memories so that we can live even after we die. Lets make our souls immortal.
