    Deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Soni 2 as he was known. We were classmates and Soni just could make even the most serious thing come out funny with a remark or a jest. I did not meet him after school but my memory of him is of the chubby friendly fellow from Kenya.
    Remember his story,one winter month, when the study lamp clamped to the metal bed leaked current and he claimed-it was funny how the cold weather gave a tingling sensation when he touced the bed frame.
    May God bless and grant his soul peace and his family strength and courage.

    Anil was a warm and wonderful human being. His entry into School marked the induction of a flood of guys from Kenya, though he had been preceeded by CM Kohli, Vinod Chhabra, the Nandas and a few others. Their manner, their inital accents and their clothing singled them out fairly early as to their origins. They were different but they did melt into the pot with a wholesomeness that made them more than welcome. Anil, I recall, was the gentle one. He was always easy to talk to, forthcoming and a willing a hospitable person. I never met him after School but the image in my mind is that of a soft spoken guy whom you instinctively liked and trusted.

    May God rest his soul and our deepest condolences to his family.

    P. S. I would be personally keen to know what happened to Anil and also could some one share more details about his life with a few recent pictures. I think the Behal’s were his cousins and will be glad if they could assist. Thanks.

    Very sad to get the news that Soni is no more. In1965 we shared a cubicle and his bed was next to mine. In 1965 he won the Glancy Dramatics art Prize. My heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. RIP dear friend.
