Remembering her…

She suffered a stroke & it left her paralyzed. The ‘busy-bee’ who loved to chatter all day was now confined within the 4 walls of her room, lying on her bed. People – relatives, friends, neighbours, well-wishers – came & went, showing their concern & regret. Unable to utter a word to any of them, her tears trickled down from the corner of her eyes, down to the pillow her head was resting on.

Every now & then her grand kids visited her & tried to cheer her up. She struggled to convey her thoughts to them through inaudible sounds & slight movement of her facial muscles, that too with great difficulty. And once in a while, when they managed to understand what she wanted to say, her eyes lit up. Her lips made some movement as if she was trying to bring up a smile. And these were the times when she looked most beautiful to me, in those 6 months of her struggle & suffering.

Grandmas hold our tiny hands for a little while, but our hands forever ~ Unknown

P.S.:- This is a tribute to my Anai, my maternal grand ma, who was bed-ridden due to paralysis post her stroke. She had been one of the most positive & jovial person in my life. I love you Anai & I miss you!

  2. Moving tribute to your grand ma. Plz don’t mind when people close to us suffer from stroke, I wish they die so that they don’t suffer. When my Dad was in the coma, I was secretly praying that he die peacefully..he was very active and just imagine how stroke make them suffer.
