alternate day or so, it was a painful condition, and during this time I was in
Mumbai, India working. I had learnt of his condition from my parents, who stay
near to his place. After a month of his condition becoming a worse, one very
early morning I had a dream of him getting out of a black Cadillac, he got out
of the rear door, he was wearing black, he waved me a good bye, I could see a
kind of sad smile on his face, it was not a happy face, most interesting fact is
the place where the car was parked was in between his house and mine, and there
is a fence around his house, and this was at my side of the fence, his body was
cremated at this spot at his side of the fence, and I could not see anything
else other than him, this car, and a tall coconut tree under which the car was,
there really is this tree at this spot, other wise everything else was dark
black in the dream. After this incident I called home and talked to my mom and
related this experience and she said he expired a day before. the funny thing is

however I have visited many a web sites with people claiming experiences and most times I intuitively feel how much they are lies and exaggerations and many times it is more of some day dreaming which actually are imaginations which become strong with time and take a shape in your mind ( just like there was a very famous case of a girl who led to the imprisonment of her own father for raping her in her childhood, which after a lot of investigation and considering many solid proofs was concluded that, human mind has this ability of adding any data to your own memories almost like editing your memory unconsciously, and after many years the father was left free.( I don't know how much of it I was able to express, I am very bad with narrating things).
