So a death happened… just like so many must have happened around the world at the same time. So we went into mourning, just like so many loved ones of the deceased must have; the only difference being that some of the people mourning him didn’t even know him. We neither knew his face nor figure; neither his personality nor his principles. But we mourned him, because he has been a part of the community that we were now a part of.
The people who knew him cried their hearts out and the people who did not know him just looked on in silence, not knowing where to go, what to do. They did not even know who the world had lost, who they had missed a chance to know. But a death affected them nevertheless- all the people, whether they knew him or not. The death of a young man- who seemed to be the epitome of life itself, multi talented and loved by everyone- was a shock. To have lost life at an age of 19, that too for no fault of his. It was a tragedy that even the ignorant people mourned.
We all prayed for his soul, wished him peace and remembered him.
And I learnt a lesson… no matter what you are going through or how you are or where you are… there always are people who love you and care for you.
Whoever you are… you will be sorely missed by all who knew you…
Rest in peace.
