2017 started with a bang, with party into the wee hours. The night fused into the morning with us kissing the new sun in a hangover. Days passed as we planned for a weekend getaway to ‘Pench National Park’ in MP. On the early hours on 8th morning, on our way to Pench National Park, we met with a fatal accident. A truck slammed into our car in a crossroad, killing the driver on the spot. While three of my friends had few injuries, remaining were severely injured. While I was lying in ICU with a cranial fracture, one of my friends took his last breath as he passed away, failing to make it to the hospital. That night, 2017 gave us a fatal blow. We lost a gem of a person. A jolly and creative soul left us for a better place in God’s den.
I came out strong both emotionally and physically, within weeks. As per docs advice, I was to restrain myself from any hard physical work or rigorous travel for the next 3-4 months. But I recovered faster than expected and started my 2017 adventure.
