Bombay - Deja vu

Got home in the early hours of the morning. Air France (bunch of dicks) lost all my checked in luggage and then forced me to go thru the red-channel in customs.
Met my dad again, and cried silently in the darkness after i did. My idol now looks like a holocaust survivor. He's gone so skinny that i was afraid to hug him. I hate the way life throws these curveballs at you..especially about people who u think are invincible

Some thoughts

What of this life that we plan?
Not knowing the curve ahead
Yet, hope within hope, a lost cause
For darkness is the only victor.

Should we forget our kin
humankind and a transparent future...
I for one would strive for that state
not country, not land, only in mind.

The trip to India -- revisited

Just found out that my pops had to undergo a major surgery to remove three MORE lumps that they found in his intestines...will be returning to Bombay this coming monday to attend to him. People at my work place are probably rolling their eyes at me and basically indirectly telling me that my promotion is going down the drain.
Reality is family is always first..be it with my fiancee or my blood. My sis will be coming down from the Middle-east to see pops, so this promses to be fun.
Well India..here i come..hang in there pops

Status of my dad

Got some bad news this week..my dad seemed to be recovering Ok until he went to the hospital for a follow up scan. Turns out that he has 3 more lumps in his small intestine. The docs have now sent a sample for a lypm-node cancer biopsy/histopathology report. Keeping my fingers crossed and saying a little prayer for a man who has never done any wrong to anyone all his life.
