… In Memory of Shilpa Srivastava

Shilpa - In Memory

……. In Memory of Shilpa, a dear friend of mine

“He passes in his departure from this world to the physical Self; he passes to the Self of life; he passes to the Self of mind; he passes to the Self of knowledge; he passes to the Self of bliss; he moves through these worlds at will.” — Sri Aurobindo

Taittiriya Upanishad III. 10. 5

A year has passed, Shilpa has left us. So Soon… So Fast ….

Loss is a loss and we never know when it comes. True, every tale of parting is different.

With the wings of time, you dry your eyes but the wound never heals.

Whoever says loss fades away with time is a sheer lie.

Only the spaces grow longer

Loss is inevitable but we fail to realize the time

But, don’t cry – those we lose always stay connected to us

Only tears keep building a stair with memories in a lane

Waiting for the reincarnation of the soul ….

As Walter Scott says….

“Death—the last sleep? No, it is the final awakening.”
