It is young to die at 82, re… - Moneylife


Whatever be the 'moral of the story' Ms Deshmukh intended to convey, there is always a heaviness in the heart of elders when 'younger' ones leave. I am 71. I remember, in 1959/60 when my mother's youger sister passed away in a village 200 km away and a person travelled all the way to convey the sad news, my mother an I were sitting in the verandah. When the person conveyed the news, my mother broke down and when she got over the shock, the question she asked was "How can I tell this to mother?" Whatever be the age, the elder person will find it tough to reconcile with loss of younger ones.
