One of our senior and loved members, Paulina lost her husband on thursday. Sri B.M.C. Nair, Paulina's husband was a distinguished diplomat in Indian Foreign Service. He was an eminent novelist, and his stories have been made into Malayalam movies. He was as acclaimed a writer, as a diplomat and above all a sterling human being who completed Paulina . The loss of a loved one can never be fully compensated. I know Paulina to be a sweet, sensitive and strong lady. A friend who went beyond the bandwidth of IL to be a supporter, confidant n motivator. I pray that God almighty gives her, her daughter n grand children the strength to bear this loss. May God grant the departed soul peace and rest.
