Underneath was written, “Mere Chhota bhaai,love you” He was so full of life, i have yet to see another man who has his traits. My heart wrenches in grief for having lost a friend, a brother.I also look deep inside myself today, even more than I ever did, to see where is it that everyone goes from the inside hidden secret path …. for there certainly resides the Absolute One.
