3 days now, and I still cannot believe this year can be so bad for us. We lost my beloved father just this May. Just were we recovering from the mammoth loss. And suddenly, we find the earth under our feet take a free fall, leaving us all no where. I just reached india, amidst chaos, shock and immense loss.
It was around 8:30 on the Wednesday night, I was picking up some holiday shopping. And talking with Jyo about the long weekend. The call came from my brother (Raghu), about the dreadful car accident my brother (Anand), aunt, and little sister (Rani), two of her friends. Rani and her friends succumbed. While Anand and aunt were barely able to survive.
Rani is not a typical girl. She was the apple of the eye for every member of the (extended) family. Even her friends. She was studying MBBS II year. She was one girl among 8 boys. She was extremely brilliant, spoke her mind always. She was fun loving and honest at the same time. Most of all, She was the one that put every small thing in the family together.
Now all seems so lost. We were astonished at the number of people that visited / called / consoled us during this hardship. Her friends, back from when she was 10, were there for the last ride.
May her soul rest in peace. Rani. We miss you. So much.
