    SunPa, he'd always invite BH and me to go over to Jaipur and say tell me when you are coming. I'll make all arrangements. I'll take you'll shopping. BH never got around to doing that. His loss. He did not get to meet such a marvellous person.

    I used to read out his jokes to BH. Recently BH sent me a whatsapp joke with the note "For Kamalji". I forwarded it faithfully. Kamalji was delighted and sent another joke in response for the BH. This was just about 2 weeks ago. Before they could get to know each other personally, .....

    Bhargs, despite all his efforts to make himself look like a rake, no matter what words he used to describe young women, I can personally tell you, he was a complete gentleman. We had a whatsapp group for our friends from IL. Kamalji was a member of many such groups. He'd scrupulously keep his 'men's only' jokes out of our group and send us all the funny ones. Everyday he'd forward old Hindi songs. If one dug deeper into whatever he wrote, there was a lot of down-to-earth, practical wisdom. Indeed, he has lived an exemplary life and we are fortunate to have got to know one such person on earth. No malice, no hatred, only good wishes for all around him.

    jskls, Kamalji was the kind of person one cannot believe is not there. His personality was so strong, he can never die.

    Hi Syamala,

    Glad to know that you were in touch with Kamalji. I met his mother. She is around 86. Also a very peppy person. The apple did not fall too far from the tree. I pray for her to find the strength to face this loss, which for a mother is never acceptable at any age.

    So true, Kamalji was a very unique personality. Totally honest, no nonsense and fun-loving. I really used to dig his posts on his conversations with God. :) He'd write it in light vein, but dig deeper and one could see that he had his own belief in a higher power with whom he had a personal bond.

    Our loss, Kamala. He was a friend without a second.

    So true Ashima. When I conveyed the news to the senior members of IL, this is just what they told me. Apparently it is a great blessing to pass on this day and one cannot get that for the asking. May his soul rest in peace.
