We Miss You, Brother!

Was it not yesterday we went out for dinner together? Then why is it that today I don't see you around?

Was it not yesterday that we bashed each other in the game? Then why is it that today there is no one to pick up the other controller?

Was it not yesterday that we had planned to zip around Mumbai exploring new places in your car? Then why is it that today you car lies in the parking without it's owner?

Was it not yesterday that we pulled your leg about all the gals whom you hit on? Then why is it that today I can't make myself heard?

Was it not yesterday that I clicked your snaps and promised to share it this time for sure? Then why is it that today I can't find you to collect them?

Was it not yesterday that we had planned to catch up on all the movies this weekend? Then why is it that today I dread at the thought of going to the theatre?

Was it not yesterday that we had planned to have a ball at the wedding of our common friend? Then why is it that today I cringe at the thought of celebrations without you?

Was it not yesterday that we were spreading news about the insane dowry prospective bride's fathers were luring you with? Then why is it that today I have no one to take offense of it?

Was it not yesterday you were right here, with all of us? Then why is it that today you are with the angels and one among them?

The memories of all the yesterday's with you. Memories of you are all that I have today! Will miss you today, tomorrow and forever!

I lost a dear friend of mine, Naresh Kodithala, on the fateful morning of April 24th. He was only 26 and his death could have been easily averted if some bloody environmentalists had not got the railing at Tiger Leap Point (Lonavala) removed. A slip to death was not what he deserved. It's not what any youngster deserves. And as we speak, the spot waits for it's next victim. His sister has blogged about it(http://sangeethakodithala.blogspot.com/2011/05/conservation-at-what-cost.html) and wrote to the env ministry at - http://moef.nic.in/modules/contact-ministry/contact-ministry/ Pls write in your comments too for them to take notice and act. Let's try our bit and avoid more lives being lost. A die hard fan of Sachin Tendulkar, the 'King' as he was known in his friends circle departed for his heavenly abode on God's birthday! We continue to miss him each moment!

And you made me cry again. :'( May his soul rest in peace, and may God bless his family and friends.

Is not to die.

At times, I feel blessed for even having known him. But can't help but think about the void I have in my life now.

Wherever he is, he must know he's probably the most loved person! Never imagined a life without him, can't imagine even now.

this is really saddening...they should have taken action about it although they knew that more than 30 people have lost their lives like that...i just pray to god that such things never happen to anyone in future and may god bless him and may his soul rest in peace...god bless his family ....
