It has been 30 days

It has been 30 days since my father passed away. Time flies!

I feel overwhelmed with the amount of work that needs to be sorted in this situation. Every day, I’m learning about new things needing my attention or to be taken care of.

In India, the time taken to get any formal documentation after one’s passing is ridiculous. One needs extreme levels of patience to handle the people in the bureaucracy. Even the staff at the bottom of the bureaucracy chain will test your patience. It’s frustrating for me because I grew up in the UAE & UK where things get done effectively and efficiently.

At the moment, I’m just taking one day at a time. It’s hard. I miss my father very much. May Allah SWT grant our family the strength and courage to move forward. Ameen!
