Rest In Peace

I received very shocking news late last night. One of my colleagues had died in a freak accident. She was ran over by her own car and died on the spot. Apparently she was trying to close and lock the electric gate manually and the car had rolled down the slope of her driveway and smashed into her. What a terrible way to die!

I still couldn’t believe Pritha’s gone. I was talking to some of her close friends and they said that they had just met and spoken to her at a farewell party last Friday for another colleague who is leaving the company and Pritha sounded jovial as usual.

I don’t know her personally but I’ve spoken to her few times when her department was auditing my department. She was a very nice, chatty and friendly person, unlike a typical auditor. She's not cold and distant. In fact she was the opposite. She will surely be missed by many people. It is true what they say. The good always die young.

R.I.P. Pritha...

what a horrible way to die. dont oyu think it's insensitive of the media to show THAT picture of her body under the car? i wondered how painful it must have felt for her loved ones to view....i also think a dead body should have the last grain of respect - at hte very least, just show her photo ID, but certainly not a body in that manner.
ntah lah..it seems disrespectful to the deceased.
