One realises the vibe of death, when it puts its frigid hands on one’s beloved. Death does not come with a warning; but it leaves behind a devastated family, void companionship and helpless surviving partner. Each one of us at some point of time has experienced the pain and sorrow of losing a beloved from within the family or a near and dear companion, a senior mentor or a business associate. At that hour of grief, while sorrow engulfs the mind, one witnesses an environment of sheer helplessness.
The feeling of having lost a close family member/ an acquaintance/ a friend/an associate or a person known to us, overcasts the surroundings, making one feel that the activity and world around us has come to a virtual standstill. One tends to slip into nostalgia intermittently cherishing memories of the memorable past of togetherness and bondage, making oneself realise the sudden void. For the bereaved family, apart from the emotional trauma and shock, financial insecurity supersedes everything, especially if the deceased was the prime earning member of the family. The family members are left in a confused state of mind and sentiments drive decisions with ration thinking sometimes taking a back seat. It is at this stage that appropriate guidance and assistance is critical and utmost required.
