Rest in peace Nikunj

A friend from IIT and a great guy passed away a few days ago. I just found out, he was a great guy. Excellent sense of humor, quite around new people but once you got to know him he was a blast. He made short quick comments which threw everyone into fits of laughter, played poker, laughed hard, played halo with the rest of the guys and was amazing to everyone. It's really sad, we don't think of our mortality often and when something like this happens you think life isn't assured. No one knows what will happen tomorrow, or today for that matter. He was killed by a drunk driver in Houston. It's surprising how something that happens half the world away can so completely affect you and make you realize how people who you are not even in contact with are still connected to you. I had not talked to him in about eight months or so and I still feel a sense of loss and sadness. I guess it's good to know that he had a happy life. It's sad that he had to go when he had just graduated and had his whole life ahead of him.. Rest in peace Nikunj, it was great knowing you. I will pray for you & that God gives your loved ones the strength to bear the loss.
Think about it, the loss of one person can affect you so much, what happens when you loose your entire family? I am talking about Lebanon and Palestine here. Hopefully there will be peace in the world, life is short enough without young people dying in war.
This post was originally supposed to be about how Pepsi is cheating everyone with the diet Pepsi 1 calorie thingy but I am in no mood to post about that now maybe later.
