G Vinod is no more

Lokesh sent a mail that sent a chill down my spine. I was stunned to learn of the sad and untimely demise of G Vinod, one of my pals from school. He passed away on the 19th at 2330 hrs owing to a serious accident he met with in Chennai.

Vinod and I weren't very close, but I do remember him as being an exceptionally well behaved, shy, down-to-earth and hated-by none kinda guy. Academically stellar, Vinod and I were in the same section only during our primary school days after which I never had the privilege of studying with him under the same roof.

It's strange how life drops live bombs on us at moments least expected. May Vinod's near and dear ones find enough strength at this trying moment.

This is what Bertrand Russell said about religion...

Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. ... A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men.
