The Eleventh Anniversary of My Father’s death (3rd January)

How time flies, this year will be the eleventh year, my Father left for this heavenly abode. And last year after a hiatus of ten years since 2009, I was able to visit my Father’s grave to pay my respects and hopefully able to do it on a yearly basis as I miss him dearly and every day. I am still in shock and I can’t believe that I will not be able to see him in this world. I miss him so much; his voice and his presence were such a blessing. When one’s parents are alive, one does not cherish them as much as when you realize that you would not be able to see them forever (or atleast in the afterlife if you believe in one). But I am happy that he lived a full life. So my advice is that if they live from you far, call them at least once a week or even earlier and visit them on only on occasion but regularly every week even if you are super busy since they gave you birth and they love you the most in this world and nobody can replace them. I love you and miss you DAD.

Happy New Year 2020

This time, I was unable to stay awake during the last day of the year as I was exhausted by the overwhelming work, our clients send to us. But walking back was a festive to watch as people were moving towards Times Square to witness the famous ball dropping with cops every where. Any way Happy New Year to every body and may all your wishes come true. Last year for me was the best one in a long time. I started a new job and I was able to see my mother after more than six years and I was the nicest feeling to see her after all these years. Hopefully, I can go to see her every year from now onwards (based on my financial situation and also health wise). And I was lazy enough to post fewer posts than usual but this year I hope to increase it much more. So again Happy Year to every body and be safe and don’t make any New Year resolutions because it does not long last (maybe a few months or the initial two months)
