There was a book...
In my house...
"Laugh book"
We named it…
Because whenever it is in the lap of Baba...
Facing his double focal specks…
He laughs and laughs and laughs...
No matter what phase Baba was going through..
I found him holding that book..
And laughing...

It was a matter of wonder to me and to my younger sister as well…
We wanted to know the secret of that "laugh book" but we could not find out...
Until I kicked seven years of my life...
And kissed eight..

 

One fine day...
When Baba was out...
My sister whispered something in my ear...
While I put one stool over another to make my hand reach that book...
My sister waited at the door..
Keeping a watch...

Finally...
I picked the book.
And we both opened that...
There were few words scribbled inside it by my late mother...
The greatest love of Baba...
"Whenever you are sad, do laugh, so I do not feel that I and our love died inside you"....
And below that...
Few words were scribbled by Baba...
"If I cry...  that will be the last day of my life"...

Now the secret was in front of us...
All of our life we believed...
Baba is the happiest person on earth...
Having his pocket full of happy moments....
And then...
It turned out something else..

We both closed the book immediately...
Emotions gathered...
And we both laughed...
Respecting the last wish of my late mother...

That day...
Only that day...
Seeing us laughing...
Holding his book...
Baba cried...
And cried...
And cried...

And next day...
We buried the book.
In a coffin...
Along with Baba
