Today has been a mix of joy and sadness, I woke up to shrieking sounds coming out of our neighbors house. On inquiry we got to know that 2 of my neighbors (Husband and Wife) had committed suicide. Although i did not know them personally, i have seen them at various times and they seemed like nice people. What made the whole thing worse was they tried to hang their 5 year old daughter too. As it turned out the rope was too long for her and she survived, although she had to stay with the corpses overnight since they had tied up her hand and mouth.
I don’t really want to go into the morality of the whole thing but i hope their souls rest in peace and i hope her daughter grows up without being affected by her convoluted past. My heart goes out to her and if she continues to stay opposite our house, i will make sure to get to know her and help in anyway possible.
After such a dampening start, my day got much better thanks to a great Christmas lunch at our very own Rockstar’s house. Lots of interesting chatter and absolutely sublime food (*slurp). Thanks for the invite Gaurav, certainly made my day.
All in all, A day of mixed emotions. Reminds me of the Alanis Morisette song Ironic
Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything’s okay and everything’s going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything’s gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face
Merry Christmas folks! May the force be with you all.
