She was the 3rd one among 7 siblings. She was happily married with two kids. She finished her bachelors and masters after she got married. Started her career as a professor in the English department. She was very independent and caring to her family. Always proud of her sons. Loved to do shopping, especially for saris and jewelries. She was a diehard fan of soap opera for the last couple of years. She was unconditionally loved by her husband. I would say that she was a survivor: she survived a horrible accident about 20 years ago. That changed her life and directed her on a different path that was not as smooth as it was before. While I was literature student, she introduced me to her son. She proposed to me on behalf of her son. We had a few things in common such as being independent. She wanted me to dress up or wear jewelry, but I was always the other way around. …We didn’t spend a lot time together, but we always respected each other’s opinions. It was early 2014 when I saw her for the last time. I asked her if she wanted to buy some new saris. She would never say NO to it, so we bought 7 saris together. I bet she didn’t wear all of them. She also asked when she would see me next time! I said in two years…We talked about Shakespeare and Henry Wadsworth.
“Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven, Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget me not of the angels.” –Henry Wadsworth.
