28th Oct 1959 - 27th May 2021

The path is sunny and bright. 

A more beautiful life couldn’t have been had. 

We walk along, enjoying every breath, every minute.


The ground beneath seems to give way.

Everything seems to be slipping away.

Flung into an endless abyss.

Of darkness

And despair.

Hope and a frantic foothold.

I’m confident I can pull ourselves out.

But no.

The foothold gives way

We are flung further into the depths.

Clutching at straws,

Laboured breaths,

The incessant beeps

Flashing lights of the ICU monitors

Faith and Hope

Darkness and Despair

And then

It is all over.

I am flung out


The sunlight hurts my eyes

I grope around

Shards of my broken heart all around.

The silence is deafening.

The road ahead is in darkness.

What was and Has been.

What is…What will be….

Bruised and Broken

I need to stand tall

The last words

The confidence and strength

Reposed in me

I need to carry on

A legacy, A dream.

The strength envelops me

Albeit from another Realm.

  4. So touching and poignant. Tanuja I pray to god to give you the strength to face this irreparable loss. Love and regards.

  5. Vivek is and will be missed by me and all those who have known him.

  6. Yes the heart continues to be heavy disbelief. However we must walk on , with a smile on our face and fond memories in our heart.

  7. Echo your sentiments, Tanuja. Memories are all that we carry now, though, even as I write, I find it hard to accept that God has invited him to be with Him. You have a flair for writing, as you have shown in the past as well. Keep it up! And yes, we are only a message away. In case of anything at all, don't forget to ping Abhay, Sashi, Ramesh and we will all rush inπŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

  8. Sincere condolences. May he rest in peace

  9. So moving dear Tanu, I want to wrap my arms around you and hold you tight. Words woven with threads of such stark emotions, straight from a grief stricken heart. The hope and faith, the sinking feeling as everything was slipping away, clinging to the last straw, the sudden loss, the deafening silence, I can feel it in the depth of my heart. 😒 Pl do summon courage and strength dear Tanu. Vivek is with you, every moment. God will guide you every step of the way. Lots of love and hugs to you. ❤️
