Thanks for the beautiful tribute to Popat uncle, Nipun. As I finished reading this, I found my hand on my heart-- perhaps because so much of this rings true.
I recall the time he came over our place in Fremont when Anha was born and a few months later how he opened up his home when we were in LA for 'Walk for Hope in 2004'.
Not only did he open up his home but also his heart. As Joanna Macy says: "The heart that breaks open can contain the whole universe" and I am sure, now, the Universe holds his spirit in a special place.
