He's gone.

It's 1:10 a.m. I have just returned from the cremation ground after setting my father's ashes adrift in the river.

He left us a little before six this evening. My mother saw him minutes before he stopped breathing. I broke up my class halfway and went off to say goodbye.

It was a long, difficult, complicated, and unnecessarily painful life. For both of us, for our sins. But he was at last quietly content after coming back to live with me.

I shall pray that after life's fitful fever he sleeps well.

Baba, farewell. We shall, I hope, meet again. In happier times and climes.

Deeply sorry for your loss, Sir. Losing a parent, that too under such difficult and painful conditions, is heart-breaking. I hope time heals your agony, at least some of it. May be someday, when you see it fit to do so, you will relive your memories of your father on this blog. For now, my condolences.

Regards,
Joydeep
