Death comes calling again

The shocking news of Praveen's passing away came as a blow to all of us today. This time my good friend and someone who was more like a little brother to all of us, just 27 years of age passes away after suffering a bout of high fever for just four days. It is difficult to believe how such a sweet person, hale and healthy (weighed 85 kilos and was a regular at the gym) could just slip away just like that. Constantly thinking of him is only throwing me deeper into some morbid depression. Being the only son of his parents he has left a void that can never be filled. I pray God to give his parents the strength to go through this agonizing moment of trial. Iron Maiden's song "Only the Good die young" was so befitting of Praveen. May his soul rest in peace.
