The Word of the Day is HECTIC,
I hope you enjoy using this word in a story, poem or anecdote.
My father-in-law passed away last year on March 24th. We follow the Hindu calendar for deciding the days for our festivals, rites and rituals. My father-in-law’s first death anniversary was yesterday. We performed certain rites and rituals on the 10th, 11th and today. We performed these rites in a temple hall. Yesterday was the main day and we were happy most of our near relatives could attend.
We were reading about the increase in Covid cases in my country. We were not sure if our relatives could attend. But all those who came wore masks and were careful. My father-in-law was loved and respected by all his relatives and by those came into contact with him. Lockdown was imposed across the country last year on the day he passed away last year. Our village is in the neighbouring state and only those who lived in our village could attend. So this year our relatives made it a point to attend to show their love and respect for him.
These three days were very hectic, organizing everything and inviting our relatives and other small details. We were very happy that everything went off smoothly and it was wonderful to see our cousins and all other relatives. My brother, sister-in-law and mother too came. My mother will be with us for some months. She could not come here for more than a year.
Though the days were hectic we felt happy and satisfied.
