Today was a sad day for us – My mother’s father’s younger brother died today – he was the last one of his generation. He was in a bad shape for some time. We had went to see him a month ago.
So we all went to his house at Eranakulam (we means me, my mom, my mother’s elder sister, her younger brother, his wife and my mother’s elder sister’s son.. lol.. confusing when I say it that way..). We stayed there until all the rituals were completed. It was a good thing we went there – it was nice to see most of my relatives – we usually only meet on occasions like this (lol.. we meet when somebody dies or if someone is getting married.)
