Yesterday night I got a call from my friend. He asked me if I had read the newspaper. On receiving a no he said there was a small piece written about an accident that had taken place yesterday morning. The guys who died were his close classmates. He had even been to the mortuary only to be horrified at seeing those distorted faces.The two guys had got drunk and were having fun driving at 1:30 in the morning. And as fate decides, they were hit by a truck.There were two more following them in a bike who also happened to witness the accident. The driver died on the spot..and the second guy died soon due to excessive brain damage. Both were bright students of the NIT ,Calicut.Infact one had even landed up with a placement which offered him Rs. 1000000 annually.I was at Ccd when I heard the news and that got me pretty upset. After paying the bill I got to witness another minor accident and then later on another one right at the junction. What made it worse was that the movie I went to watch after all this happened to commence with an accident scene. That kept me pondering for a while.Quite a messy day but it's high time that the youth should start realising the importance of how dangerous it is to drink and drive and driving whilst using the cell phone. So many posters, documentaries, awareness programmes have been done on this.But in vain.Nothing is precious than your life.Don't push yourself onto being a vegetable.
