Remembering GRANDPARENTS


“I am lucky I have all the four to adore, cuddle, teach, play, understand and support. I love them immensely and truly.”

You all might have already guessed for whom 4 I am referring to, for sure they are the grandparents. Their love and blessings showered on us makes us stronger.

But unfortunately I am not that lucky, I could not spend time with my grandfathers and always wondered how it would be to talk to and play with grandfathers. Though both maternal and paternal grandmother showered their love on us and we were their darling granddaughters somewhere in my heart there is a vacuum that miss my grandfathers affection.
 
According to Hindu rituals and customs 15 days of Pitr paksh, which are 15 days prior to Navratri marks the days as Shrad pooja. 'Shradh' is observed when we welcome our beloved ones who have left this world to bestow us with their sacred blessings.   

 
Though the destiny can’t be changed but still my heart wants a strange wish. I wish to God, just give me atleast one day to spend with my grandpa, just a few moments to relive, to listen, to learn, to express my heart out. This heart yearns to be blessed with this one moment.   


PoemOnGrandParents- Aura Of Thoughts


A heartfelt poem अनोखी चाह : Strange Wish  which I have penned down in remembrance of my grandfathers few months back on the blog would like to share with you all. This poem is in Hindi, I have also written a rough non-rhyming translation of it in English.



चाहा था आपके पास बैठूँ
कुछ कहुँ और कुछ आपसे सुनु ,
बैठूँ गोद में आपके हर बार
जब पडे माँ से मीठी मार
आपकी मुस्कान मुझे दिलासा देती,
फिर गलती दोहराने का एहसास दिलाती
