Her mother’s death

“ Death – Shakespeare said is inevitable…it would come when it has to come – but at least it should have so much sense to let the victim live his life to the fullest. How can one be so cruel - so merciless as to snatch someone from their dearest one? We cry bitterly if we loose ‘something’ precious then how can we bear the pain of being separate from ‘someone’ whom we love so much…o God , please do some miracle…” such thoughts raced in Ruchika’s mind as she sat outside ICU …her mother was inside – all covered with pipes and machines – she could barely make out her mother . His father was pacing up and down a few yards away from her. She could clearly see those lines of his forehead, appearing to be like those mountains which she used to draw when she was in kinder garden. She could see tears in his eyes which he was trying to suppress in vain.
 
She thought of her mother. She was the most beautiful lady on this earth and even better a mother. She would never give her a chance to be crossed with her…she understood her so well. The picture of a lovely lady in a cotton saree pleated neatly, floated in front of her eyes. “She is the best mother” she sighed. Then suddenly she remembered her smile. The loveliest smile – a smile which cannot be equalled or compared to any other smile on this earth. Her smile was as sweet as honey, as fresh as the morning dew and as cool and soothing as the beam of moon on a full moon day. That smile was enough to console her during her troubles. – That smile would make her smile.
 
She remembered the warm hug which she used to receive from her mother – it used to free her from all her worries – it used to remind that her mother is always by her side , no matter what happens.
 
And as these thought swayed her from the tensed environment of hospital to the beautiful Elysium, tears rolled down her cheeks.
 
Her father had stopped with his pacing and sat nearby – perhaps he was thinking the same thing. Ruchika’s mother was in the last stage of blood cancer. She had only few minutes to live – or rather suffer.
 
“Excuse me sir, you can meet your wife – for last time” the nurse said sympathically. They went inside. She tried to look into her mother’s big beautiful eyes…but she could see nothing except pain. Her mother smiled faintly to her … but that sweetest smile of hers could not hide her pain. As she sat by her side, she affectionally moved her hand over Ruchika’s hair – she could feel her weakness
 
“Don’t worry my child – be happy – and look after your father – you know how careless he is…” she said very weakly, with great difficulty.
“How can – how can I be happy without you mother – why are you going? Please don’t go – take me along with you – please mom – please” she sobbed. She could bear no more – she fell on her knees, buried her face in her hand and cried bitterly.
 
Suddenly her mother smiled – and then they were disturbed by the “beep” sound of the heartbeat recorder device. She was gone – somewhere in the Elysium – leaving her 14 years old daughter and her husband alone.

Her father held her tightly in his arms – she could hear him sobbing – his tears fell on her shoulders making her red dress wet. And then the nurse entered and covered the corpse with the white bed sheet.
