Kollu Pati

Yesterday we went to see Shubha's great grandma, who might not turn 100 next March 03rd. She's lost most senses, and her food intake has become near zero in the last couple of days. Just about a year ago we used to marvel at her memory at this age, and were pretty sure of the century.

Its sad to see a human being in the state she is in. One does not even know whether she is in pain or not. Hospitalization seems like a cruel option, with the drips and tubes for the force-feeds etc, and hospitalization for what, anyhow.

I don't want to live to be a 100. I hope shes not in pain.
