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.
