Sister’s Tribute

She didn’t realise how two years passed. The time when Kusum was in senses again after spending two precious years of her life, in a single room of the house where she lived with her family, she felt that is enough of mourning of her brother’s demise.

“Oh! life is unpredictable, everyone has to leave this earth some or other day. So, please move on.” This is how she was consoled by every visitor.
But is it really very easy to forget the loss of a part of the family?

You know family itself is like a body and losing anyone of them is like losing a part of the body, and this how she felt when she lost her dear brother Rehaan. Her brother’s death was not a normal one.

Rehaan used to stay at any other place, away from his family, he had a job there. He stayed there for almost two years. Everything was going very smoothly untill Rehaan’s mother got a call from his rent owner.

He informed her that Rehaan health is in serious condition and he can’t even walk, so he asked her to come and take him. After a while she pleaded the rent owner to bring her son to their place and in return he will be paid. So he brought Rehaan to his home in two days.

Rehaan wasn’t in the same condition the way he left home. His health deteriorated, he was lean and weak, and when he saw his mom he showered a smile, an ecstasy of reaching, a place called as heaven on earth for him. His dad rushed to him and hugged him and brought him inside home. Rehaan memory was turning weak, his memory of past one year washed away. He didn’t remember anything, whatever happened in last one year. Actually, his brain was infected and this was the reason he was losing his memory slowly and also he was losing his sight.

From the time when Rehaan was brought to home, Kusum looked after him like a mother. She used to take care of his meals medicines, cleanliness and what not. It felt like Rehaan was recovering, although condition of his memory was still the same but physical appearance seemed to be better. But we know well about the silence and calmness before the calamity.

One night everyone was having dinner but that night Rehaan refused to eat, he was anxious, but Kusum like a mother again gave him strength and hope, she said “we will fight together, you’re not alone.” She made him to eat dinner and everyone went to their bed.

Next morning when Kusum went to see her brother, she saw that Rehaan was still, he was not breathing anymore, his heartbeat stopped and his eye lids were not responding. This was the time when Kusum gathered as much strength she could, this was the time when she saw he dad shedding tears for the very first time.  Then how could she forget these things at once?

But now, it has been two years and Kusum couldn’t forget this incident. This broke her from inside and outside, her soul, mind, body, she was lost. But now when she came back to senses, she realised she mourned for a very long time and by doing this she has already disappointed her brother a lot. Now she promised herself to pay tribute to her brother by realising his dream. He wanted to see her independent. Kusum with firm determination started working on her dreams and she turned into a successful entrepreneur and named her company “Rehaan Enterprises”.
