Seeing us off!

He is more or less bereft of all locomotory capabilities. But he could not bear to sit in his house as we bade goodbye (leaving for Durgapur – inlaws house).

So over a period of half an hour, he painstakingly took one step after another with the help of his stick and then the security guy and then plonked on a chair.

And then waited patiently till we came down an hour later – all that just so that he could bid us goodbye!!

Now if I can get him to agree to yet another surgery…..

    I am speechless… nothing to say….Amazingly beautiful……..An hour and half worth of effort invested so that he could see you leave and say “bye”…Is there a word in english ( or for that matter, in any language) to describe this ?

    He had an equally long walk back to the house….What was he thinking , how was he feeling , while walking back ? What was he saying to you, even if you were not there, in front of him?
