AN UNFORGETTABLE TRIP TO BANGALORE – Master Alvin.M.Sam

It was an unforgettable trip that I had to Bangalore recently along with Moni Appachen(Chry),Jacobkutty achachen(Pallom) & Jerry achachen(Ekm) to attend the funeral service of Thambachen appachen(Mr.Issac Mathew) who left for his heavenly abode on 27.04.2012.

The four of us commenced our journey from our respective places on 28.04.2012(Saturday) afternoon. We were compelled to travel by Air bus as trains were not available. We reached Bangalore the next day(Sunday) morning around 8’O clock. We  were received by Sunil achachen’s(Moni appachen’s son) Father-in-law. He had been waiting so patiently in the bus stop from 6.15 am even though our bus arrived only at 8’O clock. He took us to Baby ammachi’s house in his car. And we reached Baby ammachi’s house at 8.45am. We freshened ourselves and  had a delicious breakfast.  Ammachi compelled each one of us to eat upto our maximum capacity, She treated us with great care and affection even though she was weak in her physical strength.After a while we all had a prayer before we left to attend the funeral.

We along with Baby ammachi left to attend the funeral. We reached appachen’s house by 10.30am. By the time we reached there the dead body was brought. We sat near the body and sang songs along with others. By 1:00pm Rev.M.O.Oommen(Vicar,Mar Thoma Syrian church,Primrose road) arrived and the funeral service began. That was a service which touched the hearts of all those who stood there. The body was then taken to  the church for burial under the leadership of achen by 1:30pm. The service at the church started soon. Appachen’s  brother, Aneena chechi(Akkare ammachi’s Grand daughter) ,his batchmates & co-believers paid rich tributes to the departed soul and   conveyed their condolences to the sorrowful family members. The crowd was allowed to see him one last time. And the body was taken to the cemetery inorder to be cremated.We couldn’t go to the cemetery as there was hardly an hour for  us to get back to the bus station. So,after meeting all our relatives we started our jouney to the bus stop.After having some snacks we all arrived at the bus stop at 5.30pm. The bus came at exactly 6:00pm and we started our jouney back to kerala, reaching here the next morning.

Our heartfelt condolences to Grace ammama, Sneha chechi & Deepu achachen. May the Lord Almighty grant His everlasting peace on each member of the family.

I and Jerry achachen are so thankful to Moni appachen & Jacobkutty achachen for all their support and care they showed to both of us throughout the journey.

May God  Bless all of us!

Master.Alvin.M.Sam
