A Familiar Stranger

I was talking to a distant relative whom I have not seen for more than a decade.While talking, he asked me how my dad was. A very straight forward question, but it is one which always leaves me struggling for an answer.

Hoping that he wouldn't probe further, I mumbled a vague reply.

My relative then went on and asked me if I was the one who used to study at APIIT. When I asked how did he know, he said that my dad mentioned it to him before a long time ago.

Hearing that made me feel sad.

I know I shouldn't be.

Feeling sad over a person I hardly ever knew?

C'mon snap out of it.
