A child asked his grandfather, “How old are you grandpa?”

“Grandpa is 70 years old.”

“Until what age will you live?”

“Grandpa will live until 75.”

Child thought, ‘That’s short’ feeling unfamiliar bitter sadness as he keeps looking at his grandfather.


He is sitting next to bed where his father is lying down. He holds his father’s hand tight. The doctor who is standing next to him declared the time of death. He bursts into tears looking at his father whose eyes are closed. He mumbles inaudible words as he lowers his head. His body is tremulous.
