He went through a rough patch when he fell ill and was hospitalised in Bengaluru, a couple of years ago. After his recovery, his parents were averse to him returning to Mumbai, but he came back and rented an apartment not too far from my residence.

I checked with another friend, who told me that someone had died by suicide. Yesterday, I got to know that it was Sam. I am still shaken up and can’t come to terms with it.
