The moment people heard about the unfortunate incident they started queuing up in front of the house to get a glimpse. It was shocking how people actually wanted to ‘see’ the dead. To see the non-existent. There was the initial panic. People were all talking about it. Then the sadness gradually creeped in. The burial. And that was that. The end.

Another life had come, gone and made no significant difference to the Earth.
You believe in God mate? Of course you do. Well He is Bollywood at heart. Likes a few twists and turns in between. But ultimately it’s always a fairy tale. All you have to do is play along and do your bit properly.
