A Year is a Relative Thing

"...When a person dies he only appears to die. He is still very much alive in the past... All moments, past, present and future, always have existed, always will exist. ...It is just an illusion we have here on Earth that one moment follows another one, like beads on a string, and that once a moment is gone it is gone forever."
- Kurt Vonnegut
We miss you today. Just like we have for the last 364.

Dear Deepa, Neal, Hema and Kapil,

A long year has passed as we remember Anuj and Adityaji. It has been a long winter. Rather than mourn the loss now, I remember how brightly they shined in their life, giving light, love and joy to all of us. An incredibly rich example to continue to inspire family and friends for years to come, so eloquently captured in this website

Dear Deepa, Neel, Hema and Kapil:

Your family is often in our thoughts. The write up on Anuj is thorough and unique that I have read several times just to absorb his qualities-God wants us to follow in his footsteps of kindness, care, love, and a vision for people who suffer a lot. His memory must strengthen our spirit. Hema, I loved reading your heart-felt poems-so beautiful-I wish I could just fly and be with you people-but it is a wishful thinking-IDRF does not leave any time for dreams-but it is ok to live each day with gratitude that a day has been used well.

Today we remember Anuj with heavy heart. As a year passed after Anuj was snatched away from all of us, we reflected on the stories about him and loving comments posted on the Blog devoted to his memory. The pictures on the Blog showing him with family and friends speak volumes about Anuj’s captivating personality. We miss him very much.

Our dearest beloved Anuj,

Your great achievements continue to make us so proud of you. Seeing the website again yesterday, all the loving memories came alive and we could feel you with us. On the 11th, I lit a diya in front of your picture and remembered you deeply in our hearts. We love you very much and you will always be in our hearts and our memories as long as we live.



Your Mohini Mausi and Raj Mausaji

My dear Deepa:
All of us join you all to remember dearest Anuj on this occasion. It has been a very very sad incident and whenever, we think about it our eyes get filled with tears.
He was an exceptionally brilliant boy. We all PRAY to ALMIGHTY GOD
so that his noble soul may rest in PEACE.

I have many memories of Anuj, and now many memories of your family, that I will cherish forever. Of course the memory of Anuj will stay alive in many people, he was an amazing person who touched many people, who will never forget him.

Even though I know I haven’t been in touch, I still remember you all very very much, and you all are in my thoughts…J This is a hard time, and I just want you guys to know that there are many others out there who are remembering Anuj, celebrating him, and mourning him with you, even if they don’t get a chance to reach out and express that.

Take care of yourselves, if I am in SF (which I plan to be at some point this summer), I will come visit for sure.

June 11 marked a year in one profound sense and today marks a year since we held a service for Anuj. Those days, and every single one that's followed still pierce our hearts. A year, indeed, is a relative thing. In so many ways, our lives have been altered, and in other respects, I feel like time has stood completely still. The images are just as intense, as are our raw emotions that linger on the surface and deep below. We tuck them away in public, but they remain with us. How could they not?

Anuj, how a person of such rare beauty, grace and intelligence could be taken from us is beyond my comprehension. I will never understand. Everyday I learn something new and wonderful about you and it makes me all the more sad that I knew you for such a short time. If only this and if only that. If only...

Love always,
your bhabhi

My dear beloved son ( Pyare bete ) Anuj, as I used to call you.

On this day June 15, I remember you & miss you so much, that I got up really early.
I wanted to do some thing today which you used to tell me repeatedly with lots of affection.
" Mom you have to do it."

Today on this 15th of June as I walked alone this morning, for the first time , you were with me as an ANGLE, encouraging me & telling me .......".Keep up doing mom........you can do it............I love you too, as much as you love me, .........I am with you every second of a day"

I want to tell you Anuj, I will try to continue this walk & keep you remembering all the time, as I will walk.

Miss you so much,
mom
