Sam...

I drove past Akbar today and his expression was just not the same. I still cannot come to terms with this. I still cannot believe this. I miss you man.

Really really sad and my heartfelt condolences to his family. May his soul rest in peace. I am really shocked and couldn't digest it for minutes together. Sometimes fate is too cruel, especially to people like Sam.

It is one week now, that we have all been bereaved.

A life was lived, larger than most.
Stories were shared, entertaining than most.
Love was given, more freely than most.
Laughter was sounded, joyous than most.
Embraces were thrown, tighter than most,
Smiles were shared, sweeter than most.
Eyebrows were knitted, frowning than most.
Arms were outstretched, oftener than most.
Generosity was offered, generously than most.
Temper was tantrummed, lesser than most.
Calm was divided, equally to most.
A heart was shared, given, offered, pledged, committed, more than most.
A life was lived, much larger than most.

A Cancerman was lit up, by the light of the moon and the sun together.

Sameer Kapasi, tonight, the sun and the moon will shine a little less. In deference to your entry into the heavens and the tears of the multitude which will gather to bid you adieu!

May all those who love you, find you enshrined in their hearts........forever!

Thank you for sharing the Universe with us, albeit for a very short period of human time.

While wanting to post some thing in shifting gears thread I came across this thread.Though I had feeling that something had gone terribly wrong but I was just praying that this is also one of those thread started by Sam.My prayers were not answered unfortunately.

For the past one week I am following this thread whenever I get time.
Sam, I never had known you on a personal level but I think I know you more than many other members whom I know personally.

I am sure you are making the Gods Happy and have made Heaven an even more enjoyable place.

R.I.P. Sam.
Your sudden bereavement is a great loss to the team bhp community.

In his own words on one of the blogs,
"Ironic that I'm the one who runs around trying to spread the YetiLife®, but I don't have the courage to follow my dream just yet.

But I will. I will. And till then I will travel, write and live the Yetilife with TheOne®.

Who knows, maybe someday you guys will talk of the unknown almost-a-writer you knew. Hey, I knew him, he was almost-a-writer!"

Sam had a very bold outlook more like Bill Hicks, very few people can wear those cloaks to inspire others.

Wish Sam eternal peace and happiness.

Not just a writer, a potent one at that.

It is a week now. A good man is gone forever.

Makes one realize how ephemeral this life is...

In Memoriam of a Good Man and True, let us all resolve to Do and Be the best we can always.

Life is too short for anything else.

Sad to hear about Sam. Having lost very young friends in the prime of their life has numbed my feelings, emotions, sensitivity greatly. I find great solace in this poem. I hope it helps Jenny and Family, those close to Sam and all of us on this forum as it helped me handle the grief some...

Do not stand at my grave and weep,

I am not there; I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow,

I am the diamond glints on snow,

I am the sun on ripened grain,

I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning’s hush

I am the swift uplifting rush

Of quiet birds in circling flight.

I am the soft star-shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,

I am not there; I did not die.


- Mary Elizabeth Frye
