No 1 is no more
Thru this journey we take, our day to day routine at times we are confronted with issues that weigh on your mind, from petty issues what should I eat today to if I should quit my job. My dad always said a quote that I often use time to time " Son, I was sad I had no shoes till I met a man with no feet?"
Tuesday evening my number 1 uncles passed on.. A while back I blogged my uncle slipping into a coma and the debate raging in my mind over home care or house care.
My mum called me to informed me as I was at work, it was not a shock but a resigned face he has finally rested after over 5 months in a coma.
He is number 1, the chief the eldest of them all along which he carried his family and brothers, a quiet man, a humble man, growing up I would never have heard him raise his voice, gave me away, always made it a point to see him once a while especially during Depavali, he would ask how i am, bout my job etc etc.
Even at time ridiculed for being too passive he has his own way, a person someone always looked up to. An "Annai" to every one ..... just not sure what to type... in summary to quote not to compare ... Einstein on Gandhi – “generation to come, people would disbelieve that such a man flesh and blood ever walked on earth”
We lost someone good today!
