Mahesh had borrowed the camera tripod from Vipin. So that he could set the camera timer and take group photos with himself in it too.
And today he got the news that Vipin is dead.
Well, should he return the tripod? It was quite a new piece, unused and probably nobody at his home even knew of its existence.
Vipin is no longer there to use it now.
And Vipin had told him that he could keep it. But he had insisted that he would return it after he had had fun experimenting with it for sometime.
But Vipin is no longer there to appreciate the fact that he had remembered to return it. And not that it would matter to any one if he did not.
Its only a camera tripod after all. In the midst of the bigger pain of Vipin's passing away, a tripod stand is too small a thing to be brought up...
A week later Mahesh went to Vipin's house and returned the tripod stand to his wife.
