So? What do you think of the above few quotes? The comments section of an obituary? Nope, they are actually snippets off the scrapbook of a pretty close friend of mine. No, he wasn't just a friend, he was my brother... the only younger brother I ever had!

I was in an important meeting, yesterday afternoon, when I suddenly get a sms from a common friend, "Did you hear about Atul? It was really sad!" and then Saxi's message asking me to call up Manas, in quick succession. Normally I give my work a higher priority, but yesterday, my heart skipped a beat. I excused myself out of the air conditioned conference room and called up Manas.

I guess, the rest of the story is pretty much conceivable, isn't it? Yes, another bike accident on the roads of Pune! Another Symbiosis student spot dead! That was what the news was broadcast!

Yes, I lost my brother yesterday.

This is not an obituary that I am working on. Frankly, I do not know what it is that I am writing. I just know that it's an avenue to vent out my emotions, my frustrations. I was surprised to find that I didn't shed a single tear drop, after I heard about the incident. My first reaction was to rush off to Pune but somehow, my vanity and sanity prevailed.

I was thinking of talking about a few things that we had done together, of sharing a few good times that we shared together. Somehow, while I ponder on them, I realize I have so many memories buried within myself that I'll have to break open a huge dam to recount them all. I suddenly realized, despite us not being in regular touch in the last 1 year, I still love him as much as I always did!

Sometimes, I feel guilty to keep the moods so sombre around The Wall Mag, in the past week or so. I know, after a day's hard work, it is the Wall Mag that brings a cheer to your face. Yet, in a city with no friends and family, this was the only place I could speak out.

Just a few words for Atul,

You Rock, man!!

Hey !!
Thats really sad.The sense of loss,deprivation are all part of this great journey called life and as the Great Showman once said said "The show must go on"...with every passing moment the wave of time shall wash away the names carved on the sands of eternity...what remains in the memory.

May his soul rest in peace but not his memories....

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl

When I escaped death !!!

12th June'13, 10.30 pm : I was driving back from a dinner party at dizzying speeds of around 80 KMPH inside a city. Then in my  psychedelic drive (yes I get high without alcohol), I saw a signal square few 100 meters ahead. I decreased the speed ( Signals are switched off after 10 pm in Nagpur so exercised caution ) to 60 KMPH (I am an engineer and I like my exact figures) but my car jumped off a speed breaker which I could not spot in the city darkness . I thought I controlled my car by the time I reached the signal square but  baaaaangggg !!! Few seconds later - I realized I was still alive!! saved by the airbag. Take a note everybody. The same day during daytime around 4.30 pm, I was feeling restless with a feeling of fear & anxiety inside me. A friend inquired and I replied back "I can feel something bad is going to happen with me today". That night I was hit by a speeding car straight (at 90 degrees) on the driver's door. Upon impact
