My dear son...

My brilliant and yet humble
soft spoken and straight forward
analytical and passionate
ever smiling, joyful, cool and kind son.....

Looking back the last 29 years,

You were hanging on to my shoulder as a child
laughed many times on pulling my face by your little hand
some times pulled my specs out of my face and threw away in anger
Holding on my hand and looking up at me you asked many questions
For some of them I bluffed, some I avoided and for a few I answered correctly
But you kept on asking me...and later on started your own analysis...

As a school boy brought me lot of happiness by your achievements
Passed NTSE at both levels just like that

Brought laurels both in Engineering (BITS) and in Management (IIML)
On many many occasions ( all these 29 years) you made me proud
By bringing lot of medals, trophies, certificates,...

But, oh, the last certificate (DC) that came to me in Sep 2009 shattered my heart into pieces..

Dear son, how can I, your poor mom and young brother will come out of this shock..? how can we pull the days without you?

But we also know that you are living with us for ever..
Living in the melodious guitar musics you played...
Living in the great forests and hillocks you went for trekking and enjoying nature..
Living in the pile of books that you used to love and read...
Living in the music album CD collections...
Living in anything that is beautiful and lovely...
Living in anything that is stylish and handsome ...
Living in the simple South Indian Food you loved...
Living in your car which you loved the most...
