ಅಪ್ಪ ಇಲ್ಲದ ಗಣಪತಿ ಹಬ್ಬ

ಅಪ್ಪ ಇಲ್ಲದ ಗಣಪತಿ ಹಬ್ಬ, ಬೋಳು ಆಲದ ಮರದಂತೆ.
ಶುಭ್ರ ಮಗುಟ ಧರಿಸಿ ಶ್ರದ್ಧೆಯಿಂದ ಅವರು ಪೂಜಿಸುತ್ತಿದ್ದ ರೀತಿ, ಮಂತ್ರಘೋಷದ ಏರಿಳಿತಗಳಲ್ಲಿದ್ದ ಭಕ್ತಿ ರಸ…ಇನ್ನು ಬರಿ ನೆನಪಷ್ಟೆ.

ನನ್ನ ಮಟ್ಟಿಗೆ ಹೇಳುವುದಾದರೆ, ಹಬ್ಬದ ಹಿಂದಿನ ರಾತ್ರಿ ಸೂರನ್ನೆ ದಿಟ್ಟಿಸುತ್ತಾ ನಿದ್ರಿಸಲು ಪ್ರಯತ್ನಿಸಿದೆ. ಅಪ್ಪನ ನೆನಪು ತುಂಬ ಕಾಡುತ್ತಿತ್ತು. ಅತ್ತುಬಿಡಬೇಕು ಎಂದುಕೊಂಡೆ. ಅಳು ಬರಲೇ ಇಲ್ಲ, ಆದರೆ ದುಃಖ ಉಮ್ಮಳಿಸುತ್ತಿತ್ತು.

ಹಬ್ಬವೇ ಇಲ್ಲದ ಹಬ್ಬದ ದಿನ, ಮನಸ್ಸು ಮುದುಡಿ ಗೂಡು ಹೊಕ್ಕಿತ್ತು.
ಅಪ್ಪ ಇಲ್ಲದ ಗಣಪತಿ ಹಬ್ಬ, ಹಾರಲು ಮರೆತ ಹಕ್ಕಿಯಂತೆ.

    ನಿಮ್ಮ ಮನಸ್ಸಿಗೆ ನೆಮ್ಮದಿ ಸಿಕ್ಕಲೆಂದು ಮಾತ್ರ ಕೇಳಿಕೊಳ್ಳಬಲ್ಲೆ. ನೆನಪುಗಳು ಮಾಸುವುದು ಸುಲಭದ ಮಾತಲ್ಲ.

    ಕಳೆದುಕೊಂಡವರು ಮಾತ್ರ ಕಳೆದುಕೊಂಡವರ ಮನಸ್ಸನ್ನು ಅರಿಯಬಲ್ಲರು.

  3. @ Veena:
    I agree, exact same feelings here. Whenever I had success in anything, Appa would be so much more happier than I would be.

    @ neelanjana:
    Thank you. As they say, time is the healer.

    Time heals?
    In my case at times I feel the intensity is fading..the pain suddenly resurfaces ans stabs..


  5. @ neel3:
    I have been told that time is the healer. I haven’t really experienced it yet, it’s too soon for me.

    May God give you strength to overcome this hour of grief.
    I don’t think we can ever learn to live without our lost loved ones. We just learn to accept that they are not amongst us.

    DS: Thanks for sharing your grief. I don’t know how much the following will help….

    Whether true or not, our Hindu beliefs and Buddhist Jaathaka tales are beautiful as well as comforting and very meaningful too.

    My maternal granduncle Narayan was a brilliant chemical engineer who retired as the deputy director of IIT-Mumbai and many companies.

    He died peacefully in sleep in Brno at his brother-in-law’s place. The same year a son was born to me – his brother’s daughter’s son.

    I don’t know why but I had felt like naming my son after my granduncle but didn’t.

    My elders now say that Jr. has the same brilliance and different way of looking at things as his great grand uncle. Unlikely that Jr’s brilliance was due to the inherited genes because Narayan was childless.

    I recall an earlier response by you in these pages that you are not yet a father.

    I wonder if your bereavement, sad as it is, has some significance …….

    I am reminded of SLB’s Naayi Neralu. I am told the movie is also very good.

    appanannu kaledukondavirige gottu avara mahatva
    nanage saha hege agutttu ondondu sala
    karana ganapathi habbakke 4 dina munchene 99ralli
    nammannu bittu horataru nanna preetiya tande
    nanage avaru friend philosopher guide
    avara vyktitvadalli swalpavadu nanu padedidre nanu dhanya
    appa igo ninage nnanna ashru tarpana
    hage yellara kaleduhoda tande tayndrigi nammellara namana

    devaru yellarigu shkti kodali jeevana madalikke
    appa amma illavadaga kala chakra urltairutte
    badukujatakabandi vidhi adara saheba alva


  10. @ shark:
    You are right. I am not sure when we will really accept such things though.

    @ Aram and Srik:
    Thanks.
