    Many thanks indeed for updating your website with the news of my husband’s death. Rajiv was a very proud Old Cottonian and spoke very often about his schooldays there. In fact I always used to call him “OC” – which he loved.
    He took me to visit the school back in the early 1990’s and we still have the pictures and lots of wonderful memories of our trip to Simla.
    Rajiv died far too young but the doctors were amazed by his will to live. And I’m in no doubt that his schooling contributed to his strength of character.
    With best wishes from Germany,
    Helen Seeney Sharma

      “Mouse” as Rajiv was affectionately called was part of the school choir. He was the lead tenor and I a prominent sprano. Many years my senior, I can still recall that lovely, crisp voice which had a “puckish” tone about it. I recall he was popular among his peer group and came across as a person who was balanced, sensible and intelligent.

      With the personality he had, broadcasting was the profession for him and he seemed to have taken to it like a duck to water !!

      May his sould rest in peace. Our deepest condolences to his wife and family.

    I didn’t know Rajiv,but the loss of one among our brotherhood should always hurt. Evidently,he rose to be an outstanding performer in the career he chose and will be missed by many,as a true Cottonian always would. While respecting his eminence,I extend my deep condolence to the members of his family.May the Almighty Lord rest his noble soul in peace eternal.
