Philip V Francis.....The God's took him away to lead their Choir......
As I write this post tears don't seem to stop rolling from my eyes....Till last Tuesday he was there....and today he is no more in this world. I am totally devastated .....I can't even think of my musical world without my Philip....He was the only person with whom I talked my heart out about music....And now a terrible bike accident has taken him away from this world....The God's must be crazy....or jealous...He met with this terrible mishap right at the front gate of the Church where he used to lead the Choir.....He sang so much for God.....and God took him away so soon....Maybe to lead his Choir....maybe to let Philip's dream come true....he would meet his favourite musicians there....Baburaj, Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Madan Mohan....He was a soul who could not even think of harming anybody...And why would he have to bear such such a fate? His sole wealth was music....He lived and breathed music.....Till day before yesterday there was hope....Today early morning he was clinically pronounced dead....after he fought with the inevitable for a week....we all prayed for him....did he really want to die? Was he fed up of this world where genuine music was becoming a rare commodity?
It may seem a coincidence...but Music Director "Raveendran Master" left us on a March 3. Now Philip who has worked with him leaves us on a March 4th!
I can't write more.....I am totally shattered and in shock!
