Deepa, a beautiful life
Updated: May 8
Little did I know that Deepa will bring so much joy and happiness to me. Had I known this, I
would have endeavoured to bring her into my life much earlier. My beloved Deepa joined hands with me to live together from 2007 onwards. A person with a beautiful soul and a wonderful and interesting personality. A coach knows all the secrets to winning only an athlete actually wins. Deepa was a born athlete. Her mindset was not tuned to win and tuned to think and analyse. Had she been in Australia from a young age, we would have seen a star. But, she didnt mind the missed chances. She was content and happy to join hands with me and and make the most of every day. From a very difficult situation in my life, our lives blossomed slowly and steadily. Deepa worked as a volunteer for homeless people for some time. She was the first employee of her company IBRC Conferences. Much of her earnings, she donated to charity. We had our twin daughters in Westmead Hospital in 2014. Through the kids she brought more joy into our family and lived a joyous life to the brim.
Deepa was a private person and she shared very little of her difficulties. In retrospect, it appears she was getting tired easily for some time. In October 2018, she was diagnosed with a life altering illness. Her in-hospital treatment began on the day the twins started their kindergarden school. She was a brave and strong woman and fought ferociously to avoid succumbing to her illness. In January this year, she was declared terminally ill. It was said that she would pass away in a few days. Deepa chose to stay at home and luckily it didnt happen the way it was said.
My kids and myself had the greatest joy in taking care of her. Covid-19 was a blessing in disguise for us. We were able to spend a lot of time with her, taking care of her every need. The kids had a quiet but wonderful 6th birthday. Her health continued to deteriorate to the point she was no longer able to do any of her activities herself. On Saturday 2nd May 2020, Deepa became critically ill and was transferred to hospital. Deepa passed away peacefully on the 5th May 2020.
Living with Deepa has been one of the best things that have happened in my life. It was wonderful. I am extremely grateful for being able to share my life with her. She brought joy to me and everyone arround me. While her body departs this day, Deepa resides in our hearts forever.
