We were never close my man, but we were friends.
You left this world too fast for us to set the trends.
I know you are up there looking down and smiling at the world.
For soon we shall meet again to talk about the stories untold.
Rest In Peace Brother.

Sharing few memories during our high school at Don Bosco. Always remember these and many others when I thinks of you.

During our outing to Chennai (2005, if I am not wrong), we were doing some shopping in streets and saw a book stall. That was time when I heard of this great book: Brief history of Time. To my astonishment, Anton had not heard of it; A very rare occasion. I explained to him proudly that its a good book on physics and a man on wheel chairs wrote it. We both brought the book. A week after this, I read may be 1-2 chapters from the book, but could not understand much. That was time when we were learning Relativity and stuff. Anton started asking questions on topics in the book to the teacher who thought us Physics (Vimala ma'am). She may have cursed me if she knew how he got such doubts. :D

Another occasion of greatness and sincerity of Anton was when, during one of model exams, prior to mains during high school, that out Mathematics question paper was leaked and almost everyone had the question paper with them. Beign sincere and the leader (and the Captain School), I was afraid of leaking the paper to Anton ( My other friend who gave me the paper would go mad at me too). After exams, top scorer was Anton, scoring more than whoever had the question paper before.

Rest in peace Anton, dear friend.

a wonderful young man
