Geetha............ Aei come here. Called brother. We were in grand fathers house. I cried in my shawl. I sobbed, and wailed..My companion..... my grandpa was dead. Even in his deathbed he wanted to see me.. I could not go. He wanted to tell me something..... something important.... If I get a chance now..... I suddenly wailed before I remembered that my brother had called me. I silently went to my brother. He was sobbing..... He said "Geetha.. I think we have to go" Where? I asked. My brother said' To the cremation ground" He said. I was crying like anything when I heard this. Everything is supposed to be changing right? I did not like it when things change. Suddenly before I knew I was unconscious My brother was carrying me. He had a concerned look in his face. I gently opened my mouth and asked what had happened My brother said,"You became unconscious again. "Oh I cried... then we were walking to the cremation ground, and near grandpa's body, I saw a small pearl. It was so beautiful. I touched it.


All of a sudden my mind was wheezy and queasy. My brother disappeared and grandpa's body disappeared too. The scene disappeared. I was whirling in the wind.. I saw Grandpa's face. He was standing there. With a body full of life. I could not believe my eyes. Grandpa... I cried. I was in a mixture of emotions Sadness, Happiness, Joy, Surprise.........Then I started talking to him. I asked Grandpa :where are we? My grandpa answered ; We are in paradise. Does that mean I'm dead? No no.... you silly you are alive... He replied. Then..... I started...But he shushed me off and said Look you can only spend one day with me.. So do not waste time! I laughed and said...YES SIR! We both started laughing like we always did but there was a tingling feeling that tis was my last laugh with him. Then my grandpa asked if we could play games we started playing games. Then he told some stories to me which I enjoyed. And then he said" Convey, to your, grandma that I am always with her, and I will be with her always, At these words I remembered that he was already dead.


And then for a while told him that how he actually died.... and told which relative or friend came to his death. He was hearing patiently.. and taught some moral values to me. He asked me to keep that pearl safe..so that I could see a memory of grandpa and me and some moral values and stories that he had recorded before his entry to afterlife.... Suddenly time had passed it was time for me to leave... I said before leaving You will be without me then? A tear rolled down his cheek and he kissed me. No he replied. I was crying and embraced him till the last moment. Suddenly I was back to reality. We had actually reached the cremation ground... and then grandpa's body was going to be burned... My grandma wailed.. But I, was a little happy because at least I got one last day to spend with grandpa which no one can get.......
