Finally, the day has arrived. One of my Aunts was sewing the cloth for my grandmother.

 

My grandmother was praying just before the event had started.

 

There occurred load shedding at the middle of the night. And during the busy hours, someone forgot his / her tea.

 

All the relatives were starting to arrive at my grandparents’ home.

 

The modified kitchen was ready to be used for making some foods for the upcoming event.

 

One of my Aunts was praying at the night before the Challisha.

 

Challisha, where the friends and relatives of the dead gather after 40 days to read Quran, make dua for him and remember him. My grandfather died on 31st February, 2019. Throughout my entire life, I didn’t make any album or any kinds of photos on my grandparents. But this time, When I went to my village to attend the challisha of my grandfather, I decided to make an album on this event that was so close to our heart. I tried to make an album, to which we all can relate to. I gave each photo a caption for understanding what’s going on in the photos. I am dedicating this album to my grandfather.

 

One of my cousins was playing around the compound of the house.

 

My grandfather used this bike throughout his entire life. It is now a token of resemblance of him.

 

My grandfather has left the earth, but left his belongings.

 

My grandfather’s belongings.

 

He is my grandfather, from whom this big family was started.
