Dead in the news

Michael Jackson .. mai-ka-lal jai-kisan (in desi jokes) ... Mikaeel ... is dead ... he died a few days back ... the whole world knew MJ ... most know about his death (its all over the media) ... many are sad ... he might even be remembered by a generation or two ...

I didn't know Michael ... and am sort of indifferent to his death ... it just makes me wonder why some immensely successful people face multiple troubles in their post-success lives ...

Hidden somewhere in the papers was news of another death ...
http://www.expressindia.com/latest-news/renowned-educationist-anil-wilson-passes-away/481449/
An ex-principal of St Stephens, New Delhi had passed away ... some people people knew Anil Wilson ... most of them would be sad .... he would also be remembered by a generation or two ...

Unlike MJ's case I am not indifferent to Anil' death ....I had shared a very brief period of my life with Anil .... all of about 2 hours... when we sat in the same room.... along with 5-6 other people ... all loaded with radioactive glucose... in AIIMS ... ... All of us were in for a PET scan on 16 Oct 08 ... and though he was the known educationist ... it was I who was giving all the gyan... I was more experienced ... I had dealt with cancer for longer .... and was trying to build up some positive vibes in an otherwise gloomy room ...

anyways ...

I had wished him luck and said goodbye when I left ...

goodbye again dude ...

peace to all

People can be indifferent to celebrity death, but they cannot be indifferent to their contribution.

MJ's death does not invoke indifference, it deepens the mystery of why celebrities OD on drugs and die. Be it Marilyn Monroe,Elvis, Heath Ledger etc

Wherever they land 'Heaven' or 'Hell', let them get what they truly deserve! Amen!
