She was an ardent devotee of Lord Krishna, so much so that yesterday she called for Kirtan in Lord’s name; even from her deathbed.
You can listen to one here:
My dad was kind of a soft atheist, and when I was born, my grandma named me after her idol Lord.
This way she ensured that my dad would call out for the Lord whenever he called me :)
She’s given us lot of love in her life. I still remember my childhood’s summer holidays’ trip to her place.
As inevitable it is, the rules of Nature worked on her; She has fought cancer for a while now and at 90+ she left us this morning.
Sadly, I am in no state to do a travel to her place now, been in bed-rest since past few days.
Thankfully my mom along with her siblings are there.
Although I haven’t probably met her expectations yet; neither I became a devotee (I am a non-practicing atheist) nor I did anything that suits the great Lord’s name… all I can now wish is peace for her soul.
The loving grandma who named me.
