Since his death on
12.9.2007, myself and my family members comprising My parents and widowed elder
sister could feel his presence. My father, one evening was reading newspaper,
when suddenly he called us to say that he saw my brother-in-law sitting on his
favorite chair. On several occasions, in my sleep, (I was deeply asleep and was
not in dreams), I woke suddenly and felt the touch of somebody, in my dreams
also, I saw him in the hospital bed and he said he was free of all pains and
also was free of breathing trouble that started with his disease, once I was
partially awake, when I could clearly hear his voice saying - "Don't worry, I am
with you, move ahead in life". One morning, I was working my room and thinking
about my brother-in-law and wondering whether life existed after death, I was
very sad that point of time, when suddenly I heard his voice, calling me, I was
very happy that time.
