I have come home and I did so after I heard about my cousin's death. He was one of those members in my family, who has played a major role in shaping my makeup. Ask anyone around and you would hear from them how safely he used to drive and ride. Yet destiny had something very different in store for him and his quota of life on earth ended in a head-on collision with a local bus on February the 6th 2007. We would take quite a while to recover from this shock for sure.
It is under these circumstances that I was tagged by Binu Kurup of Sun Learning Services(SLS) and it now becomes my duty to let the public know three things (its three in SLS and not five) about me. I must add here that the untimely demise of my cousin has certainly influenced my choice of three things about me that I am mentioning below:
(1) For a very long time I have been in the process of jotting down all that I remember from my past, mainly as an expression of gratitude towards all those who have played major roles in various phase of my life. A good friend of mine suggested me a title for my story: Soliloquy. With a sincere hope that I would be able to publish this work of mine very soon, I hereby display the coverpage of my book about which only my close friends were aware till now.
(2) Nothing in my life has affected me as deeply and as profoundly as the story of Anu, my cousin.
(3) On 11th May 1991, seven of us miraculously escaped a major train accident. The omni in which we were travelling was hit by a slow moving train, causing severe damage to our vehicle, but leaving most of us with only some minor injuries. Should you wish to know more on this, you may kindly read about the complete incident here .
Having done my job of playing my part in this blog-tag game, I now need to figure out a couple of my colleagues in SLS to pass on this baton.
