K: Ahh!! I don’t like this, even it is good..
A: K, I don’t think someone can miss this food what your mom is preparing… I can say she is one of the finest cook…
K: Hmmm…
A: And I really want to learn something from her…
K: Yeah… I will invite all of you someday at home and then you can meet her…
A: That will be great…

AN: That will be perfect K… however its too late today… can we plan it tomorrow…?
K: Okay… not a problem… but make sure you will come tomorrow…
AN: Yes, I will co-ordinate with everyone…
K: Okay… bye for now…

Some Tuesday…

K: So you people are coming for a dinner right…?
AN: Yes K, I have communicated and we are all set…
K: Perfect…

She was cooking the best of her food that evening…
She was very excited…
She was thinking that she is going to meet the people she might have heard of at times… on and off…
She forgot to mention the severe headache she was suffering through since last two days…
Anyways everybody thought that this might be normal to have common health issues at the age of 62… Like headache…
And with the course of time and excitement in meeting the people, she was just cooking…

AN Called…

AN: Hi K… we are about to reach… can you confirm your address please…?
K: Its this… and please bring some soft drink with you…
AN: Okay fine, we will take care of this…

PL: We have reached K… we are parking the car…
K: That’s fine… just park it somewhere… But I don’t know what happened suddenly… my mom got unconscious… she may be fine in sometime… might be just a panic attack…
PL: Ohh… don’t worry, she will be fine… we are just coming inside…
K: Okay…

A: Hi K… what happened…? Why she got unconscious…?
K: I don’t know man… its quite sometime she is not responding… Anyways, you enjoy your food… We, family, are taking care of it… and please I am sorry not to give you proper time..
A: Please, that is fine… a person is more important then giving us the time… you don’t worry and take care of your mom..
K: Okay.. You people eat something… I will join you soon.. I hope she will become conscious soon and will be fine…
A: Don’t worry at all… everything will be fine… she will be okay…
K: Thanks…

Doc: She has a brain hamerage…
K got a shock…
She was just fine…
She was preparing food…
She was excited about meeting people…
People wanted to meet her…
And now, she was in deep sleep… coma… question mark…
She can’t move… she can’t do anything…

K: She is gone now…
A: K, we are very sorry for your lose… just do let us know what we can do.. anything…
K: Sure… I will let you people know…
A: Please… and we are coming just now to you…
K: Okay…

It never happened when they would have got a chance to meet the person whom cooked food they had at times…
It never happened that she would have listened the last words what the near and dear ones wanted to say to her..
It was a click…
Everything changed just like that…
People were shocked more then worried…

Its been like this always…
No-one knows what is waiting for him/her next moment…
Finish everything… say everything whatever you want to say to anyone…
Show your love… show your affection…
And if you are not attached to the materialistic stuff, then don’t cry at all when someone goes…
But if one is attached, the time is now to let someone know how much you love and care to someone…
There is no next moment waiting…
And if it is waiting, then it will not last forever…
Don’t take chances… by fighting… by showing their anger…
Cause when someone goes… leaves this body, they left with nothing but regret…
Why I have not done this… why I have not done that…
And if someone had done the things at the right time without waiting… if someone would have told the people what they mean to him/her, then there is no regret s/he have to face…
Atleast with the less density…
That is how we are…
In this matrix of relationships…
Emotions… love… hatred…connections… whatever…

The time is now…
No matter what you are doing…

I am still wandering between the thoughts what is it…
What one is missing, what can be missed…
Wheel of life…
What one have to enjoy… what all a person can have to enjoy… what one have to wait for…
If this is it, then why we are bothered at all…
And if we are bothered then why we are not doing anything about it…
Don’t know what we are after…
Don’t know what was there.. what is there… what it will be and how…
What is left… what has to be left…
Nohing…
So why we are like that if there is nothing…
The only reason I can think of is we have to be like this…
Things happen and we regret, we get sad and then we have to become normal…
And then we say… “That is how life is…”
We keep answering ourself…

I still remember the best upma I had…
May God bless the soul…
