I am not in the right frame of mind to write a long post but the death of Phil Hughes, aged only 25, after being hit by a cricket ball makes me contemplate this whole business called life. How fickle the human life is, how unsure we are of what might happen to us the very next moment, how very vulnerable we all actually are in the face of the ultimate truth staring at all of us, always lurking behind the shadows - death.
Phil was an exceptionally talented batsman, one whose technique was unique to him and I always considered him to be one of the brightest stars that shone on the Australian horizon right now.

You will be loved by all regardless of nationality, color or caste,
that smile will be etched in our hearts forever,
the unfulfilled aspirations in your eyes will always give fuel to our sagging energies!!
RIP Phil Hughes - Forever 63*
