hmm, yes!... its part of The Journey

Each meeting -
a new life...

Each parting -
a small personal death
... a loss
of a part of myself,

... a lonely vaccuum
demanding to be filled up.

But then,
Death
is only a bump
on the road...

It shakes me up,
brings it back to me...
that
I am on a journey!

Hi, Madhukar,

I don't know if you remember me, but I have thought of you off and on. I sent you an e-mail a few months ago but I did not hear from you. I came to see Natasha after about 20 years and happen to ask her if she knew where you were. She apprised me about you. I am shocked by the tragic news about Gita. You are a strong, sensitive, creative,and amazing person who has kept you love and dedication alive through your writing. I agree with your words that life is journey and on this journey you collect happy as well as tragic experiences. These may either make you blossom or strike you like a boulder and leave your inner core feeling hollow and empty. However, the journey of life goes on. On this path, you are not alone in feeling this way.

On this journey where I lost touch with you for a long time, I am glad that I have found you again my friend. When I was at IIT Kanpur, I liked you, now I admire you.

If you get a few moments, please write back to me.
