Few weeks back one of our relative Shri Arvindbhai Patel (Sojitra town) London, England died in his early eighties due to his deteriorated health issues. He was widower for many years but living with his son Hitesh, his wife and daughter and living happily, enjoying his life with them, relatives and friends.
One thing I like most about his life was instead of whining and complaining he enjoyed walking, listening Hindi songs especially ear pleasing “ ghazals “ which used to give him serenity and also watching cricket on TV and socializing. When he had health issues, couple times he fell down and on and off admitted to the hospital. His daughter Manisha and her family also used to help out Hitesh to take care of Arvindbhai whenever they needed.
Lately he needed 24 hours care so Hitesh and his wife changed their work schedule to be with him. When that didn’t work out Hitesh a radiologist quit his hospital job.
I salute him of his decision especially when he is in his mid fifties and next year their daughter is getting married and also salute his wife Hasmita for her unconditional support which now a days seen in few people.
They created temple in true sense in their house by serving and taking care of Late Arvindbhai Patel as they fully understand how their parents gone through ups and downs in their life and removed all hurdles one by one to give better life,education, culture and values of both eastern and western way of life. Wishing everyone Happy New Year 2019 .
Suresh and Bhavna Patel
