The Spring Will Come...

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come. 
- Robert H. Schuller

Two recent incidents shook me.
One was that of the death of the mascara painted, peroxide blonde Sunanda Pushkar. Whether or not Shashi Tharoor had a playboy streak to him, here was a lady who spoke her mind. She clearly had an independent thought, which was clearly evident when she candidly spoke her mind on the issue of womens' rights in Kashmir under the detestable Section 370, despite the political pressures her husband's party would have put on her. That was indeed an appreciable quality. She was reportedly depressed about her husband's alleged affair with a Paki "ISI spy".
The other was the reported suicide of the Tata Motors top honcho, Karl Slym. I had met Karl Slym in Goa, when we were in the Park Hyatt for an offsite in November 2010. He, then, was heading General Motors in India and they, too, were having an offsite in the same hotel. He did come across as a warm and a fine gentleman, with an impressive physique. He reportedly had differences with wife on moving back to his home in Britain.
Isn't life too short, yet too beautiful? Indeed there will be those rainy days, there will be those days when we feel that our world is crashing down.... But there is life after that, that is what we forget.
Lest we forget, the spring will come... RIP Sunanda and Karl....
