28 May This way chachajis day of demise is a Memorial Day of different sort for me.
27th may 1964 was a bad day in my life while I was in the middle of first msc examinations. That day coincided with pandit Nehrus demise. That day too was a day when my own mom was in a critical state in the g enral hospital at peroorkada.
I had to catch a bus to my pat all uncles home at Attoor to inform him of the state of health of his elder sister.
Before us no other choice of communicating the news.
Unlike now the buses plied and no hartal about it. There were black flags and garlanded photos of Nehru in intersections and street sides where people congregated.uncle and I travelled by bus back to Tvm and then to hospital to discover that my mom perhaps will not leave all of and disappear to eternity.
With in a week she was normal and taking food on her own and so came back to home .
She lived longer life for another nearly two decades and passed away peacefully at home in my own bedside presence around 11 pm at the kythavilakom, in the kythavilakom lane, Ambalamukku.
