Tribute in memory of late Vijay Neelakantan.

October 24th 2006, very next day to Diwali… Destiny took away our most beloved Vijay Anna from the midst of us through a very tragic accident. He & anni were just back from their first diwali celebration.
Vijay Anna although you are not physically present with us, you were, you are and you will ever remain in our minds as the most considerate and loving person, we had ever met. We never considered you as a separate entity. You are in our minds, thoughts, hearts, eyes and infact you are part our system itself and nothing can take you away from there. The name given to the relation between you and us is Friend/Brother/Father and so many names. But to put it simply you are more to us than any thing else in this world. If anyone asks us whether you will remember Vijay anna, we will say NO because remembering comes when you forget a person. When we can never forget Vijay anna where is the question of remembering? At this hour of grief, we are unable to put our thoughts into words. The only thing we intend to say is We Love You Vijay anna. We always love you. You will ever remain with us.

SHINE ON.....YOU CRAZY DIAMOND…Loved you.....!

I'm referring to the death of a good friend/brother – Vijay anna in a bike accident 2 years back on this day at midnight. His death is by far is the worst way in which reality could have hit me I believe. Even now, and for ever, He will pass through in my mind and thoughts. It’s a most cruel way to take a life, but there was no one to comment on that, are we? GOD up there finally does have his way, although we try to believe that we can lead and live life on our own terms all the time.
I’m writing all this in grief and lots of pain inside. Because, it’s not just that I couldn’t be a part of those hard times, also much more for those who watched the last rights being performed, watch 2 parents sob desperately as they tried to come to terms with the drastic end to their 28 year old son, and watch his newly wed wife trying hard to believe that her soul mate was no more.
Why I didn’t attend the call on that night. Got the call again from his number next day early hour, only to hear his wife crying on the other end to break the tragic accident!
All of us have gone through our share of SHIT in life I’m sure, and more is to come I guess, but somewhere down the lane, as much as all of us tried to hide it, we realized that we were brought back onto Earth with a big damn thud!
Natural death is one thing, and that’s very well accepted after a certain point of time in life, but death of this kind is not what you want to see. Especially, There are no justification in any world for this, he was married 45 days earlier, which is when I met them, He & his wife just returned from their first diwali celebration and on the same day…
That’s the most strange thing isn't it, GOD does things when you least expect it. All of us would surely say - He didn’t deserve such an end, but do we know what we deserve for all the good and bad deeds we've done in life!
I really don’t want to prolong the misery anymore for all of us, but just wanted you guys to sit down and think - Life cannot always be driven at our own pace. We need to realize that we're in a stage, where what we do every step of the way does affect a lot of people around us too, mainly our immediate family and our closest circle of friends and foes. Even our every single emotion may hurt others, what is the point in getting angry, what do we get by doing bad deed to other human being. Please, Please, Please be careful when you get onto that bike/car the next time, when you go ahead and do something just to please yourself, not thinking of how it would affect other people.
