Today was a heart breaking day for me. I attended the funeral of a friend/aquaintance that I met during one of the tamil sangam's events. Death is the ultimate reality for all of us and it is something that we all understand the exact same way. The funeral was rather quiet, for an Indian one, but I am tempted to think everyone must have wept uncontrollably in the last week. The person passed away last week. It is very hard to come to terms with the fact that the body & soul don't exist anymore. Cancer could be very traumatizing, both for the person and for the family. His wife was one of the bravest in the hall, I guess she must have been through enough. I pray that he rests in peace and his family finds peace.

I sometimes wonder what kind of a life this is and why we all need to go through this, to ultimately end in death. What's the purpose? Why should we all be subjected to this? I guess I won't know.
