When the sun sets over a good life

He was a very dignified man who had a very distinguished life, in service of the state and country. He was well over ninety. The lamp of his life was flickering from far advanced heart failure. Yet another hospitalization was called for and he was benefitting. He was quite weak yet calm and in control. He beckoned me to his bed side, asked me to come close and spoke softly into my ear” Doctor, I see you are here every day. I wish to tell you this. I can see any doctor or go to any hospital in the city but I come to Kauvery for one reason, here I get love”

He went home next day and later I read in the newspaper that he passed away peacefully at his home a few days later.
