B uncle to Anush was a dear friend. He was our friendliest and probably most effective driver for Navy a year and after a gap another year for me.
He quit in December last year, without informing us and that left a very bad taste and I told Anush that he was a stranger ( fear and paranoia set in since I had heard of so many kidnappings in the media by known people)
Yesterday Anush asked me after a long time about him and I told her he had become a star.
She did not quiz me. Children move on.
But I am forced to recollect that flash of smile, the roguish good looks and demeanor and the bravado.
While I was angered by the way B left us, I am really saddened by the way he left the world.
Heard that he committed suicide a month ago. Love Failure is what a friend of his matter of factly said. Never thought that such a thing could happen to him!
