RIP Sr. Nirmal Singh Saini

My best friend Babbar’s dad passed away yesterday. He was suffering from cancer. I feel saddened as I know how it feels to lose the person who stands as a pillar in your life.

I remember Uncle as a very soft-spoken person. I have never seen him raise his voice.

Uncle was a gazetted officer and worked as a civilian officer with the Air Force. I can recall one of the pranks that Babbar and I played, when we had to counter-sign some forms. Babbar and I stole his stamps and signed the forms ourselves. I have no idea if he ever came to know about this.

There was an open ground behind Babbar’s home, where we used to play cricket often. And Uncle would be doing gardening in his little field, where he sowed vegetables. Our ball would always fall in the field and irritate him.

The usual memories, when Babbar and I would go to each others’ homes as buddies.. Uncle was such a soft person.

It is a loss that can never be filled, and we all have to learn to live with it. May he rest in Peace and wish his family and near and dear ones strength to face this loss bravely. Makes me sad I am not there for my friend in this hour of need.

    Really sorry for your loss and your friend’s too, Bikram. May the departed soul rest in peace. Even though you may not be able to be present by your friend’s side, you can always give him mental strength. Just be there. On phone, email, anyhow – be available. If he reaches out.

  35. Memories, these are all we have left with us to remind us of that certain someone, hence, they say, always make those memories full of joy, so when we do recall them, its tears of joy and not sorrow.

    My friend, if you don’t mind, a short lyric sprung to mind…

    jindagee to bewafaa hain yek din thhukarayegee
    maut mehaboobaa hain apane saath lekar jaayegee

    May Waheguru bless the soul, may He give strengh to your friend, his family and you to accept His Will…in Gurbani it states “Whatever you do, is sweet”. These things are outside of our outstanding my friend….

Very nice of you to write this tribute, Uncle seems like one of those people who exist, seemingly, in the periphery of our lives but when they’re gone we realize how much a part of us they were. I pray to God to rest his soul in peace and to give strength to his loved ones to withstand the loss.
