Chapter One: Odour of Death
The condolence message lay on the small round table in front of Aditi and Avasthiji. Aditi was constantly looking at the message. The written words seemed to be the embodiment of death itself.
Death can disturb anyone but an emotion goes with the death,-the age of the deceased. A child’s death arouses pity and affliction because it has not seen anything yet. An old person’s death produces sorrow and relief that the tired body has got salvation. But if a young person dies, we are shocked; we are not ready to accept it; we generally don’t easily believe it.
