Formula 1

Narain is in the news. Till the early nineties, I used to devour sports column articles, or an occasional news clip on TV, featuring Formula one racing especially Ayrton Senna. The speed, the thrill..

Then it happened.

I distinctly remember the day when I opened the newspaper to read about the accident. It was a shattering moment when formula one lost all its glamour and the harsh, ugly, horrific face of death mocked me. Ofcourse, Schumacher and now Narain are hard to miss. But Senna's death affected me in a personal level in the sense of loss of innocence, and I haven't been able to look at F1 the same way again.
