BEREAVEMENT is a part of life that most of us will have to deal with some time. Joy and sadness, love and hate, life and death are as much a part of our lives as sunrise and sunset, summer and winter. All of life is a mystery which has provided fertile soil for poets, sages and writers since mankind discovered the art of recorded thought. This book records various experiences and reactions of people from very different backgrounds who have enjoyed the blessings and the curses which life throws up. It also portrays these people in the ordinary and extraordinary aspects of their lives. One of the writers of this book was used to dealing with death in her medical practice. Her tragic story is told as it happened. The painful reality of losing parents and several more loved family members does nothing to soften the blow of losing loved ones. On the contrary, it awakens memories and makes the pain more acute. The content of this book has stirred memories for the writers as they have relived their experiences.
