Back in 1955 I met my would be life partner , my would be my woman , my Vijaya for the first time as arranged by our

mutual parents . I was 20 and Vijaya was 11 plus. We looked at each other , She sang a song , and we answered 

questions put to us by elders on both sides . We both convinced our elders that we are suitable with each other and

would be an ideal couple . Next time I saw Vijaya was in April 1956 when we were married as per Vedic Tradition .

Marriage was over a period of five days and it was all fun with relatives , introductions , entertainment etc etc .

Vijaya became my own woman in August 1958 and became my full time life partner and over next sixteen years became 

Mother Of Our Five Children . We Traveled all over India , UK and USA and were happy for nearly 60 years . Then She 

or destiny decided enough is enough and life is too good to last for ever and Vijaya left me to an unknown world 

in June 2015 ; She was 71 and I was 81 . Now I am still here after three years and Vijaya says not to worry , not to be in a

hurry , take my own time , and let children take care of me and She will be waiting for me . So Be It - me krishna .

Your children and grandchildren are so lucky to have you in their lives. To share with them how the world was is and could be. Elders are so important to us. Without their memories shared we forget our histories. And, we need this to counterbalance us. So we don't repeat mistakes. So we honor love and ancestors. Listen to Vijaya and share her with your children and grandchildren. Be here in this world until she calls you to the other side. Blessings.
