So sad! Indian IT professional returns home from US only to find his mother's skeleton
Reports say that Rituraj Sahani had not been in touch with his mother, Asha Sahani, for the last one year.
In a shocking piece of news, an Indian IT professional, who was working in the US, returned home only to meet his mother, but only found her skeleton there.
Reports say that Rituraj Sahani had not been in touch with his mother, Asha Sahani, for the last one year. The Sahanis lived in Oshiwara, Andheri and when Rituraj returned home on Sunday he was shocked to find his mother's skeleton at home.
Rituraaj also told the police that his father, Kedarnath Sahani, died in 2013 and his last conversation with his mother was in April last year. At that time she had told him that she is not capable of living alone anymore and would soon move out to an old age home. That was the last time he spoke with her.
And when he did return to check on his lonely mother he couldn't open the door as it was locked from inside. He called a key maker to get the door opened.
"On Sunday, Rituraj landed in India unannounced. He reached Lokhandwala complex in Andheri, where his mother lived, around 4.30pm and rang the doorbell. But the door was locked from inside. He then called a key maker. A hole was drilled in the door and the latch was opened. On entering the flat, Rituraj found his mother's skeleton. She was fully dressed," a senior police officer told The Times of India.
The body had fully decomposed and police say that the woman must have passed away at least a few weeks ago.
“In the bedroom, Rituraj found the body of his mother, which had decomposed to such an extent that only her skeleton remained. We suspect she must have passed away at least a few weeks ago,” said the police.
When living away from home
It's saddening that Rituraaj couldn't even check on his mother from time to time. Maybe he could have saved her or at least done something for her before she passed away. The butter reality is that in today's times almost all children are living away from their parents in cosmopolitan cities for better living, education and job opportunities.
However, checking on your parents from time to time, calling them on occasions and even otherwise and being with them at least once a year would not only make them happy but also leave you satisfied as a child.
Only if Rituraaj had done the same, would he had been spared of this lifetime guilt that would haunt him forever. We wish him peace and hope that God gives him strength to bear the massive loss.
