Goodbye SN

SN died last night and he was only 26 years old. This is the first time that somebody I know has died at such a young age. There was no accident, no suicide, no nothing. Just a mild heart attack because of gastroenteritis and he passed away.

We are all in a state of shock out here. SN died fourteen thousand miles away from home, away from his parents and loved ones. Which is a terrible thing, because SN was a rather lovable guy. He was a brilliant student, a very sharp quizzer, and a very jovial fellow. We loved talking to him, because he was always so helpful and cheerful. What is really appalling is that he was the most health conscious person around and he was seen as an example of physical fitness. He lived life on the fast lane, walked fast, drove his car really fast and his brain whirled round the globe with solutions faster than most people.

SN, you left us and you are probably smiling in heaven now, because that's what great people like you deserve, while down below, we will all mourn your irreparable loss.

Hey!! That’s absolutely shocking. Most horrible is the time now for his parents to lose such a lovely boy and that too so far away in a foreign land; and then to live with his fond memories for the rest of their lives. Formidable!!! I don’t know how to console them at this moment. Perhaps it is impossible. Only wish that they remain strong and calm in this bereavement.

… I hope that anyone who lives abroad far away from family should better be more careful to guard against such mishaps, if not for themselves, then for their loved ones at least. But this is an accident … sheer stroke of bad luck which does not happen always.. There should be no room for carelessness in matters of health. I’m sure the major reason that this chap was able to remain so cheerful, lovable, endearing and helpful is the absolute good health that he maintained

Right Akash. We are so stunned by this, that we do not know how to react.
