My friend T V Singh passed away on 24 dec 2008. As you know he was an O C and also Rana of Koti. He lived to be only 68 and is survived by his wife, mother and a daughter and son in law in Australia and a son and daughter in law and grand daughter in Simla. I spoke to Dipi Sen of Green Garages in NY just a while ago and he too had found out only yesterday as his sister had called him with the sad news from Patiala.
Now the craziest thing is that today only due to the Economic melt down in the world I was on the net reading about the South Sea Co. which was the first bubble company of 1724 and I went on to reading the link East India Co and subsequently the link Princely States of India. As a fun thing I went on to look up Koti as my buddy T V Singh is from there and I read that his son was the present Rana. I thought as T V had been keeping ill health he had abdicated and appointed his son the Rana but upon scrolling down the page I was chocked to read he had passed away only four days ago.
I mean there must be a connection, more than a coincidence that I read of him on the net just today. I like to think that I am most lucky to have such lovely friends like you and it must be love between us friends that I was to know of T V going away and somehow I found out in this fashion.
