To a friend on the death of his brother.
My dear Kiran
The tragic news has completely stunned me. If there are times when silence is golden it is surely now. Yet, I must write and tell you, that my heart just aches for you in this terrible sorrow. I know how deeply you loved Rajesh and how kind a brother he has been to you. The shock is unbearable, no doubt but what cannot be cured must be endured.
I cannot bring myself to write more to you now, neither do I believe you would wish it.
In deepest sympathy
