Appa- Good morning, darling.
Me- Hmmm.. *tapping my lap against the floor*
Appa- Do you wanna pee?
Appa- You’re tapping your lap, I think you should go pee.
He was right and I went peed and came back running as if I’ll miss the climax of the movie.
Me- ouch you’re bleeding near your chin appa. (I was scared to death looking at that tiny dot of blood)
Appa- Don’t worry. I just cut myself and it doesn’t hurt me at all. Don’t worry ok?
Me- ok if you say so. 🙂
I was around 8 years old and I used to wait for appa to come from his work and I would remove his shoes and socks. No one asked/told me to do that but I did it for few years. So one such day he comes and I see him holding his shoes in his hands and his left leg was bandaged.
Me- *anxiously* What happened to your leg appa?
Appa- A nail poked my leg and I had to go to doc to get it removed.
Me- Oh no. Does it hurt very bad?
Appa- No not at all. It’s just a big bandage and the wound actually is very small.
Me- Ok if you say so 🙂
I was around 10 years old and Appa used to go for early morning walk and it was a Sunday. Apparently he wanted to sleep but my mom forced him to go since his BP was not normal and she wanted him to be healthy. So it was past 8am in the morning and he still din’t return which made us anxious. Those were the days we din’t have mobile phones so we couldn’t contact appa in anyway. Amma called all his friends/colleagues and they said they haven’t seen him today at all. We called the hospital to check and they confirmed that he hasn’t come there too. Amma and I started to cry so bad that our neighbors gathered and the ladies were consoling us and the uncles went in different directions on look out for appa. 10 minutes past 9 am he comes home, looking all nice and happy.
Appa- Why are you all crying? What did Abhi(my brother) do now?
Amma- WHERE THE HELL WERE YOU?
Appa- at the barber shop. Got my haircut.
Neighbors- Ok we think we should leave you guys alone now.
Me- went and hugged his leg so hard and din’t wanna let him go anywhere.
Amma- Don’t touch him, he needs to shower!! #Tambrahmthings
Me- Are you ok appa?
Appa- Yes darling. Don’t worry.
Me- ok if you say so. 🙂
I was 28 years old and appa was less than half his weight, had lost his voice partially, hardly alive to be honest.
Me- Appa, don’t worry. You’re a very strong guy. Death is very very far from you. You are gonna be around for 20 more years for sure.
Appa- Ok if you say so 🙂
If only my love and will power could save him he would have lived forever. It’s ok. He’s not suffering anymore is what I tell myself and I will always be that daddy’s lil girl and he will always be my hero.
