Been away from blogging for quite a while.... Why was I away? Blogland is indeed a very nice corner of this world!
Remembering DAD. It was his birthday today. I mean it is and will always be. Been 13 long years.... Initial years were very difficult. To come to terms and accept the fact itself took a very long time. Time is the only healer I guess. Looking back, its the best way one can chance upon to go. No suffering, no pain though it was so swift and sudden that he left a void so wide that I found it very difficult to believe the truth. Dad lived life KING size. Enjoyed every bit of it. Lived life his way. Life was hard on him in his childhood and youth but probably his grit, will power, determination, courage stood like a rock behind him. He could never forget his hard days. He would tell me ` I am what I am today because.........'. or ` You are here today because.......' and share stories and anecdotes of his life. There was always something to learn from him. I think Dad loved me more than I did. Ah! my DAD.. Gave me life... Love you Dad!
