Part – I


Section 3: Volcano goddess on rampage

Killing saps and evading deaths

Suicide of Sandeep Arora

 I decided to construct a house soon after reaching Dehradun, and hired a residence for a few months from a man who was to supply the building materials for its construction. On the day he sent the first trip of materials for my house he informed me of a tragedy in his family during the previous night. A cousin of my landlord – a   young man in early twenties – had left a suicide note and hanged himself from the ceiling fan. Event was unexpected from a dynamic and active person from an affluent family. Everybody was surprised and shocked at an unexpected incidence of unnatural death. The suicide note of the person was in his diary on page August 31, 1998. It is reproduced on the next page.
