Someone very close to my heart passed away two days back, and as a result, I am forced to impose a two-day hiatus on my online activities. I’d probably traveling up north, to take care of the family and do the needful. I sincerely apologize to all for not replying to your comments yesterday, as I was (and to an extent, still am) in a state of shock. People with so much life in them are cruelly snatched away by the hands of death, in the most unexpected of ways, making me wonder about the fragility of it all.

Thanks for all your support. I will be back in a day or two and I will continue to write with the sole purpose of bringing a smile, a laugh and the occasional giggle in your lives.

Cheers! πŸ™‚

  1. Nikhil – this one is for you…
    God bless the departed…

    I never gave up then, I stood till they were all gone
    One down, two down, and so the count kept on…
    I tackled and battled the foes of the night,
    And when the last one fell, I wept like a child!

    Now I know what the wise people say,
    After every night, there is an unfailing day
    I woke up this morning with thoughts of the past
    I grinned and chuckled: come whatever may!

    -Take Care

  4. Hi Nikhil:

    Despite being too familiar with grieving, I have never known how to convey my empathy to others in the same situation. In the end, just knowing that your friends are around is all one needs.

    So, I hope you are faring well and taking care.


  5. dude, May his soul rest in peace.

    Its true, in the end, all we have to do is grin and bear it…

    What you said is quite true, and i know that for myself,

    Take care, Hugs
