A UNSENT LETTER
FROM A DAUGHTER TO HER DAD..
"My dearest dad,
Out of utter helplessness as I cried the loudest, Mom told me that your gentle hands holding me all along, held me further tight and comforted me when I got the first immunization shots at the tender age of early months when the dangers of not having the same were totally unknown..
One day it seems, I tried to stand up myself suddenly from the then crawling position and your loving hand following me all along, instantly held me making me stand without hurting myself, Mom further told..
In a few days, as I showed interest in walking, Grand Ma who was by my side told me that your kind hand again continuously held my tiny hand making me walk simultaneously taking care to see that I didn't fall down in the process..
I was told that your firm hand held my right hand gently and guided me in writing the 'First Alphabet' as Mom was busy for a while which paved way for the entire Career of my life today..
In those days of my active childhood I still remember, my one hand forever being held tight by your caring hand while moving in crowds as Mom was busy taking care of my Sis so that we would never be lost away to the unknown worlds full of all dangers..
Your kind hand often held my both hands with all love and tenderness and comforted me whenever I got hurt while playing as I distinctly recollect and remember even to this day..
And I was told by Grand Pa that your loving hand used to gently take off my hands from the book, carry me and make me rest comfortably on my bed whenever I slept off while studying..
I very much remember this day too your confident hand holding my hand and wishing all the best every time I was going for my exams with Mom waving from behind..
Again, your hand alone first congratulated me with an excitement on the face when my success in Exams was announced at the back of a great pride as Mom brought Arti from Puja Room..
There after as I see till yesterday, that kind hand of yours alone guided me walk through the initial turmoils of my work and family life and there after left me totally to myself, all along readily extending the necessary help where required, never.. never missing even a 'tiny work' involved therein!
Today, as I recollect these Golden Cherished Moments of my life, I very much feel that long back, I should have penned down this Song of Life and sent my Letter of Sincere Thanks Giving to you who gave me everything required in my life and made me stand in the world today as the fully grown and capable Woman of the modern times..
Unfortunately, the ever continuing responsibilities of mine totally kept me off from doing this.. Thus this Letter of mine ever fresh in my memory but never penned down just remains the Unsent Letter of our times as yesterday you had left all of us and gone far far away..
I wanted to say how much I loved you in my life there but my endless emotions instantly choked my throat and made me totally dumb for a while even though
Everyone Else Was Grieving."
