My Grandfather

Ashes to ashes.
Dust to dust.The elements combine, only to combust.What does it mean to love, to trustAnything that strong can only rust.
Time casts its inevitable spell
Nothing else can compel.

My grandfather, K. K. Padmanabhan passed away yesterday after a long struggle agasinst the effects of multiple myeloma and being almost 90 years old. He was a good man. He helped a lot of people, society recognized him for this. Many people owe their present to him, myself included.

If there was one statement I remember him using a lot, that probably gives one some idea of what the man was all about, it is this:

Sarvam Bramhamayam Jagath

(the entrire universe is pervaded by bramham)
