On February 15, I got the news that my father had a heart attack in Nepal on the night of February 14. My family lives 200 KM far from Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, and he had to be airlifted because there was no medical facilities that were available to make his situation stable. After 10 hours of struggle, my father was at the hands of medical experts and medical facilities that would make his condition stable. I could not sleep that night. I cried like a toddler all night long and that was the moment I thought how important person is my father to me and to the family. It was a moment to recollect everything. I had all the time in the universe but I didn’t go back to Nepal for 5 years and. I missed all those family get together, the beauty of spending time with my father and mother. I realized what journey my father had taken to make our life better. This sudden news changed everything. It changed thr way I see life and my goals. It didn’t make me pessimistic but content. Later that week we knew that my father had aneurysm and due to his medical conditions they were like ticking bomb that could brust any moment. Again they didn’t had aneurysm coiling in Nepal and he was treated at BLK Hospital in India. My brother was there to take care of everything and I was thousands miles away in blues. Waiting for the best news but preparing myself for the worst. Its been almost two months now, that my father has been discharged and he will never be same again but we are glad he is alive. This period when my father was in hospital, almost a month, was a period of great transformation in my life. I had talked with him probably few hours before he had the heart attack over Viber. I read a lot of about true meaning of life and why are we here. Not from religious prospective but from evolution’s point of view. I am an atheist and I didn’t remember Lord Almighty or prayed him for soon recovery of my father. I just consoled myself thinking this is how nature is, its wild. If my father was to take his last breath he had done it all, all his four children are big. I am the last child and I was married an year ago. For many days, I couldn’t sleep. I cried alone. I tried to call my friends, talk with my wife and relatives. I keep myself busy. Thinking every one has to face death of their loved ones, it will be hard but its unavoidable. Its the ultimate truth. It was also a time that I knew who sincerely cared for me. It was a revealing time. I got to know my friends and relatives who will be there for me no matter what an willing to do all they can in their ability. I felt really happy to have these special people with whom I could cry. Two of my high school friends who became close to me are now my brother figures. They did their best from their side. When everything was over I was able to take a long breath and let everything out.
I was so much stressed that I couldn’t take full breath.
But I learnt to be happy. I learnt to make the best of everyday. To love the ones who are there for us and to make things happen when there is time. On May 03 2016 , I have a flight to Kathmandu. I am going to see my family and I will spend time with my father. And I will try my best to give as much time as possible when he is around.
