Someone knocked on the door
Meher opened the door, Namaste Aunty
Namaste, where is the mother
She is on the bed; doctor has given her sleeping pills so that she does not feel the pain
Lady Ran towards the room where her mother is sleeping, when she entered the room she found her two brothers and their wives in the room around the bed of this lady who is sleeping.
(The lady who is sleeping, her name is Saroj, she is into her 90s, today it was diagnosed by the doctor that she is suffering from the cancer which has been spread all over his body, she has two son and one daughter, all three are married, Saroj’s husband who is also in his 90s is also in a state of shock)
When the wife of elder son saw her sister in law entering the room she tried to wake up Saroj by holding her hand, but Saroj is not responding, she is into deep sleep due to medicine.
Maa, wake up Maa, look Savita Di (Daughter of Saroj) is here , she is here to see you, wake up
Savita sit around his elder brother, what the doctor said?
No hopes, he replied
Why? Lady asked there must be some way to save her life; we are ready to spend any amount of any, ready to take her to any part of the world.
Elder brother- doctor is saying that cancer has spread throughout her body right from lungs to stomach to the backbone, her age is also a factor, doctor is saying that she is breathing her last breath so it is advisable to just keep her at home instead of visiting from one hospital to another and then to open her body at this age, it’s very difficult for to survive.
In between Saroj’s husband comes and check the pulse of Saroj who is sleeping just to make sure that she is alive and then started crying, her son’s is also crying, the situation in the house is so tensed, everyone knows that any moment she is going to die, but does not know that moment, so in their heart they are waiting for the death of their mother.
Why I am writing this, just to show the worth of humans on this earth, it’s not a story, it’s a real like situation happened with a relative which I analysed recently, these people are rich, can afford anything but are so helpless that they can’t do anything for their mother but to see her dying in front of their eye. Slowly slowly her breaths are reducing; she is ready to go into another world. I always believe that humans are nothing, sometimes I felt that whenever the God has to punish someone he/she was granted a human life, we people are born, then form the group then one by one started leaving this earth, I still don’t understand that we should be happy that we all meet and were together or should be unhappy because one day we all have to leave this world thereby leaving each other. I always believe that there are two vital decisions for every human
1) In which family to born (given a choice everyone wants to be born as a millionaire or billionaire)
2) To decide the time of my Death
When we can’t take these two decisions then how it is possible that all other decision of my life is taken by me, someone else is deriving this life, everything is predetermined, you just have to follow, but I believe we are so lost in MY MONEY, MY HOUSE, MY CARS, and MY COUNTRY that we forget everything. At last I just want to say that be happy with what you get, aim for high, make efforts, but don’t try to predetermine results because they are not in your hand, help each other and most important keep on smiling.
