The end of the road

Pages were rushing in glee as he switched off the fan. If only time could fly like those pages. On the contrary, it was time after all. Time locked in a diary. He sifted through random leafs of paper, and paused. It read,

"Feb 08 2006"
"The TV industry suffered a huge loss in the form of the untimely demise of Kuljeet Randhawa. The 26 year old actress was found hanging from the ceiling fan in her Juhu apartment at 7:30pm in the evening by her maid. She was rushed to Cooper hospital but declared dead on admission. The police ascertains the cause of death as asphyxiation due to strangulation. A suicide note was found at the scene of crime. Foul play has been ruled out."
"How unexpected! Didn't she for once think that she was a role model to many. That countless loved her and that she had a bright future. Her family, shattered. Why is suicide the 'only' form of escape? What leads to it? Loneliness, a lot of guts, circumstances... Is it a compulsion of the mind and heart? I guess I would never know."

Today, 9th Jan 2010, almost 4 years later, as he held that rope in his hand...
He knew the reason.
