38, Laurence Road,
40-A, George Avenue,
22nd June, 2010
Your letter conveying the sad news about the death of your mother has just been delivered to me. Mother is the closest of all, a friend, the best guide and philosopher. Her place cannot be taken by anybody else in this world. I well imagine your lose and do not know how to express myself on such an occasion. Even I had also received her affection when I used to visit your home.
Her calmness and inspiring mien still comes before my mind and it is hard to believe that she is no more now. It is only the almighty who knows what he has written. We are mere puppets. Though it is hard to believe and even harder to live with the fact that she is not in this physical world with us but none can alter the course of nature and this immutable laws of God. I can only imagine your situation.
Your grief is unending but it is only you who can pay homage to your mother by not ending her in tears, instead making her teachings and memories your strength. I am always with you and whenever you want me just let me know. I will visit you soon.
Please accept my condolence and take care.
