Mathur gave me the tragic news that Rohit Bansal, my wingmate at IIT, is no more. He died in a road accident in Pune yesterday. For anyone knowing how the life in a hostel is, it should be clear why this is a paticularly devastating news for me. Wingmates are the closest thing to a family that you have while in hostel. So, even though Bansi wasn't a close friend of mine, his demise is one of the saddest things that have happened to me. I hate to think about what his family is going through at the moment.
