A thought for Sundari….

Filed under: Life as I know it,When I get wild — Celia Rexselin @ 5:44 pm

She used to be very silent.. or so I thought when I first met her. While we, hostelmates, used to chatter non-stop, she would look more like a painting.. and she never came along with us to the mess. We thought that she liked eating alone… It took us one more week to figure out that she didn’t like the rice served and was starving..

Slowly, as we came to know more and more about her, we were surprised at her… Her innocence, her shyness even with girls.. But that was soon a thing of the past. Then, we came to know that she had stood first in XII exams in her district (Pattukottai). Her understanding of B.L.Theraja and how she visualised motors and their connections.. The swiftness with which she used to play carrom.

Whenever there was a misunderstanding, she would be right there.. not to console.. but to ridicule us and tease.. so that after sometime, we would forget that misunderstanding and be wondering who was that miss-understanding.. Life, went on and we parted our ways…  each of us joined IT companies..

Then the marriage… it was fun.. I never knew that all this happiness and blossom would come to a sudden end. It came as a shock to me when I heard that she had passed away due to post-delivery-complications.. I still am not able to come to terms with it.. I wish that we could get her back.. wish to see her tease us.. wish to see her turning her face away from mess food in disgust…

Why do you do this to us Sundari? I pray, that you rest in peace.. I pray that God give courage and determination to the new father and the infant to cope up with the loss.. I pray that God’s love be abundant on the little one…



  1. Thats sad.. for such a nice person!.. a person who makes things happening.. and spreads blossom all around. Its hard even to think that she is not there.. with this even to think of the baby.. its hard out!… Wish her sould rests in peace.. and hope father and baby cope up! with the things to come on their way!.. A way that is tough to think of.. hardness as rocks..! are you still looming the misery?.. or okey now?… take care daaa..

  2. This is so sad to hear.

    Little sparks like her who make a mark on the world in their own unobtrusive ways are really rare. Their presence won’t be felt but their absence will certainly be missed.

  5. I knew I would find more about Sundari in ur blogspot,when I heard about her sudden demise…I wud say,ur blog served its purpose of letting many more people know about this innocent character other than the fact that she was one among our batchmates in GCE Salem…

    Prayers and Time could be the best medicine to heal the family’s wounds on her loss…

    May she live longer in our thoughts,
    May her son,husband and parents be blessed thru Sundari’s prayers in heaven,
    May God bless mankind with good health.
