My heart goes out to the families of #gagankang & #arjitlawania This is so unfortunate I'm so perturbed by this accident. May God give enough strength to their loved ones in such sad times. My sister's closest friend had lost her son in a car crash on the highway driving at night. I have personally been through a very horrid accident recently with my loved ones. My car was also crushed like this, but we were really really lucky, with escaped with minor scratches and concussion. All I want to convey is, anyone who drives on highways, Pls pls pls don't drive in the night, Pls get enough sleep and its OK if we are delayed by few hours. Our lives are precious, if not for your self pls think of the people who love you. May Gagan's & Arijit's soul rest in peace. Om namo shivaya 🙏
