I was sure she had come to tell me about some Client calling incessantly on my phone, or some Sunday morning debt collector. "Haahn?" I chirped, trying my best to sound enthusiastic.
"Ruma, Alyosha was stabbed last night, near College. He died."
I guess one's first reaction is the one thats the most skewed. My only explanation to the fact that I had no reaction at all. Not even a bewilderment.
Pieces of the story started filtering in, along with reactions. What the exact facts are, I don't know, and perhaps are not so important. In case you think it is, a ToI report is here. A young boy, full of life, and arguably one of the most intelligent amongst his peers, is now dead.
Whatever can, or will happen, with regard to this case, no one can really tell. But what I do know is, that this will continue to affect me for the longest time. I realize that this is a very selfish take on the whole matter, but then, I guess we all put our personal spin on everything. I'll keep my rational selfless approach for any solicited advise I have to give, thank you very much.
