It's a recent experience which I had few days ago, on 7th march 2017. It was the death anniversary of my grandma. It's been 20 year she is not with us. But we never felt alone; we always had a feeling of being her presence. It was a totally normal day; we did what we do every year, going to temple, doing some rituals and all and went to our offices respectfully. After coming home from office I ate very little and went to sleep as I was most tired from the office load.
It was almost midnight when I heard some voices, voices of singing. I looked at my mobile; it was 4 am in the morning. I got shocked as who was singing so late. I properly heard that song to be finding that someone is singing it in Bengali (language),"Kon se alor sopno nia jano amar, ke dake aye chole aye". I never heard that song before. I got up and went out of my room. I concentrated on that voices as from where it was coming. I almost reached the hallway, to be finding that the voices are coming from the living room. I just stood between the hallway and to my shock I saw someone standing by the sofa, it was dark, only making me visible a figure standing. There was a switch to my right for the hallway light, I raised my hand and when I switched on the light a hand came from behind to my shoulder making me scream.
It was my mom; she woke up to some sounds, sounds of me. I looked back to the living room but there were no one, only me and my mom. "What are you doing here so late?" my mom asked. "Water, but why did you get up?" I asked. "I heard you door getting opened, you know your door makes sounds when it's getting opened" she said. She was right, and I didn't said her what I heard or saw. I dismissed it by myself thinking it was my imagination, but in other hand, I thought maybe what I saw or heard was not wrong. That voice, it was so sweet and calm. I was not feeling any fear but looking at the figure was.
Next morning I woke up, and to my amaze I was murmuring that song. I never heard that song before, but I was murmuring the music. My mom heard me "How did you know that song?" she asked. I gave her a 'Don't know' look, "Just heard somewhere, why?" I asked. "Nothing serious, actually this song was your grandma favorite, she used to sing this song for your sister when she used to go to sleep, and she used to sing for you too, when you weren't inside me, her voice was so sweet I used to sleep on her lap when she singed that song, I really miss her" she said. I had only one reaction, I was just smiling and happy that it was my grandma.
I looked at her picture and smiled.
