Transience


A new place, a new home

And a little puja of griha pravesh.

Distributing prasad, the ten-year old me

Saw him for the first time.

This was twelve years ago.

He lived upstairs. You met him?

Must have found him spreading joy!

He loved me, he loved everyone.

He was out for his morning walks

When I met him on my way to school.

Years passed, now I met him on my way to college.

Today, the same place but upstairs at his home.

Another little puja, but this time

Of uncle’s first death anniversary.

  1. So lovely. I will have to google the words I don’t know but I got the flow and feel of them. Sweet and so very relatable. The beauty of innocent love. ❤

      Puja is worshipping god. We perform different kinds of pujas for different special occasions.
      Griha pravesh also a puja. It’s like housewarming party.
      Prasad is the sweets we distribute after puja. Many a time, prasad is cooked at home.
