No idea how s that possible , As my blog is in action only since early 2007.. Time to fix some data issues folks.. Anyone listening.. Knock knock wordpress..

Ok.. Let s proceed with the post..

“””” Life has a way of surprise us all the time. Just when we think we have slogged it all, we deserve the peace and progress, Something somewhere happens to whack our little world. It happens with me all the time.
A friend who is dying with cancer, a collegaue who vanishes on one one fine weekend in “””””

******resuming from there , I think it was almost 2 years back when I wrote it. It was triggered by a meeting with a colleague who had death written all over his face. There was one colleague across my office cube, who had been on looong vacation ever since I came in the neighbourhood. I never met the person until that day.I have heard our HR lady talk about his health status, his recovery from Collon cancer , Relapse and then his decision of moving back to his home town. HR lady conducted some japanese ritual of making 1000 Origamy birds in sheer hope of some miracle.. I made some 50 birds out of sheer desperate wish to see my colleague recover..
Then other day HR lady told that his situation was worsening and doctors have done the worst.. That is to tell how many days he may live.. So HR person would send his friends’ group to meet in person. I thought that was very humane action. These folks went and gave all the origamy birds. No need to say he was very humbled. After few weeks he decided to fly back to our office to bid “final bye”.. Now how morbid is that… to meet a person very first time, whose name plate you are seeing for few months, only to see impending death in his eyes.
He was going on to say usual hi-hellos to new comers like me. He came to my office and introduced himself…
” I think you dont know me, I am Mr X and I thought I would fly back to say hi in person to everyone. I was like I know you are X.. How are you doing? and then I said , “I hope you recover soon”. I myself knew how futile was that wish. But didnt know what else I could say in this situation…..
And I saw this deafening expression of ” I know I am going to die in next two weeks”. And I think I got my reality check in his eyes..We all just run , run and run.. Never pause and think we could go in one blink of eye and never be back. If that indeed happened, would it really matter if we were one or two miles back in race….
