Ashwin and I were chatting before bed time the other day and somehow came to the topic of Ashwin's children.
"When I have children and they have their children, will you be dead?", he asked.
Yes, I replied matter-of-factly. After all, it is about many many years later. We spoke some more about some other things.
He went quiet for a while and started tearing up silently.
By then, I had almost forgotten this part of the convesation. What happened? I asked.
I'm sad that when my children have children, you will be dead.
BIG BEAR HUG to my sweet boy!
