th February 2015. The news was also covered by the daily local newspapers,” he said. Possibly I would have read the news and might have not been able to recall his father’s name and missed the incident to relate with Asif. It was really awful to know that. We spoke for a while then he left for his routine work. I noticed him while he left; his sports bike geared speed in fraction of seconds and his well-built figure diminished from my eyesight within no time. Asif had just turned twenty five this year and after sad demise of his father he was the only one to look after his family consisting his mother and younger sister. Albeit, he was lost somewhere into the busy traffic but I was still wondering that he had not learnt anything from his father’s untimely death. His way of driving was still reckless as usual and he was also not wearing helmet. His immature gesture led me into intense shock than his father’s death. The dilemma didn’t extricate my soul for the entire day and compelled me to mull over the cause behind it. How someone could be so casual about his own life? Why people are unable to learn a lesson from such horrible mistake that is followed by an unrecoverable loss to the family? Why?]]>
