What if.....???

"TAXI...KEM hospital??"....

"Shit, I guess i'll be late for the morning lecture again..."

It was Akshay.. tall, fair guy in his early 20s.. a to-be-medico...and a brilliant one too! He had been working endless nights working on the ICMR research regarding decrease in morbidity after minimally invasive cardio-vascular-thoracic surgeries.. He wanted to make it big in life.. like all his other batch mates..

"Kitna hua ??... ye lo.."

Its Dr.Nadkarni's lecture.. I guess Im not late..

Akshay struggled the last few steps leading to the lecture theatre and was relieved to find that the professor hadnt arrived yet.
There were not many students for the early 8 am lecture. Akshay was happy to get the first seat. Dr. Nadkarni was his mentor..a brilliant cardio-vascular surgeon..

"One day.. I'll be like him.. maybe even better...." and then the front door opened and the professor entered..

"Todays lecture is pretty intersting.. Surgical techniques it says.. I hope he'll tell something about Robotic surgical techniques! Thats so cool!! Just with a controller like the controller of my PS2 .. i can perform a major surgery..."

Thud!! The front door opens ajar halfway through the lecture...

"Suresh?? aaah.. poor chap.. late as usual... Dr.Nadkarni wont allow him to take a step in the lecture theatre... Dunno whats wrong with him... What the.............................................. "

Akshay collapses on his notebook.. a bullet pierces right through his chest...

Bang bang bang bang bang.... khattaaakhat... bang bang bang bang bang bang...

Theres complete silence... Dr.Nadkarni's Fingers twitch for a while... and then they lay motionless, in a pool of blood on the floor.. just like ten others...

It was just another normal day in the life of eleven normal individuals.. who had their own dreams.. dreams to make it big in life.. And this maniac enters and takes them away in a matter of a few seconds and a couple of cartridges!!

Thats what happened in the recent Virginia shoot-out.. Normal human beings... Having their own dreams... Dreams that were taken away in a whiff! It can happen to you too...

Have you given a thought to it???
