It was a winters morning in London, eleven months after the sudden death of my Mother in India and I was travelling the next week to perform the final prayer ceremony for her to end the one year mourning period we observe as Hindus for our parents.

The blinds were shut and I woke up. A picture of my Mother which is at the foot of my bed had a bright, blinding beam of light, so bright that it was hard to look at and it shone exactly on my Mother's face. There were other pictures but this beam was only on my Mother's picture.. I took many pictures of it and it appeared to be the side profile of a girl with long hair.It then disappeared within seconds but the sun was still shining.
