Yet another death.Yet another acquaintance I know.
When mom hung up on the phone and told me what had happened and asked me who had died,well,what can I tell you?
I felt knocked out,breathless.
I knew her from college.Sometimes travelled together even.
Apparently her dupatta(shawl) got caught when trying to cross the rails.They somehow didn't notice the train that rushed past a second later,which left her dead.

Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi rajioon.

Mom was worried I might get too worried.But for me it was just another reminder that death is always sharp in front of you.
For me it was Shani's death all over again.
[My cousin,my dear brother, left us last year May6th.Praying to Allah,that we shall all meet again in happy circumstances in the Hereafter.Ameen]

Couldnt help crying.

Sorry for your losses. I had one before the New Year and one right after. Life is fickle.

Sorry that you too have suffered losses. Take it or leave it,but-that's life.
It doesnt work out the way you want it.Does it?
