My father in law always said, “when i die, throw a champagne party“. There wasn’t a single person who met him and didn’t have the most wonderful memory to share.
So, here’s to you dad!! We will forever celebrate you.
We love you and we miss you. May you be liberated.

    Very sad news. He was a few years junior but I remember him well. On one memorable occcasion, on a tenner break, we drove down in his car from Simla to Delhi. Generous to a fault and a thorough gentleman. Rest In Peace, Sweetie and keep smiling up there.

    I am very saddened to hear the untimely demise of `Sweetie..He was the most generous, lovable, and helpful guy ( and I mean not only an OC) I have met in my life. I remember the days of early seventies when I moved to Delhi and going to his house on Haliey road to attend OC gatherings He was such a lavish and generous host and all OCS’ were welcome in his house at any time of day and night.. I have nothing against successful and rich persons who have achieved a lot and are famous in their own way but I have not come across guys who also have a big heart like Sweetie did. Perhaps since I am a author I am more inclined towards nice guys than successful guys. Sweetie had no hang ups like ego, status ect. With friends he was a very simple guy who would go out of his way to help a friend. May God rest his soul in peace.

    Uniformly every one testifies to Sweetie’s generosity and his hospitality. He was large hearted without a doubt. My brothers, Arun, Shelly, Ajay Bhumitra and I were recipients of that extravagant warmth.

    What we also experienced was his extending hand when he reached out to our mother. She knew she could instinctively depend on him. He exuded trust and he offered that in abundance. Such warmth you never forget and it defined who Sweety was. An exceptional friend, affable, and kind. He was a good human being, rare and certainly extraordinary.

    Our deepest sympathies to Karen and the family. We will miss him, too. May he rest in peace.

    Way too young to go!
    During the winters hols fondly remember 16 Haley Road and pigeon shoots with Homer with which bounty Karen used to drum together pigeon pies for us.
    Then for many years lost touch with each other till one day, out of the blue bumped into HS as we crossed each other at the Waitrose entrance on Edgware Road.
    Life, gentlemen, is a bitch!
    RIP my friend.

    Absolutely gutted to hear this very sad news about Sweetie Bawa..our brotherhood progressed after school and during my years in England we often met to celebrate life.. as Anil states Hailey Road was another exquisite locale where he entertained us with immaculate Butler Service and more.. those beautiful statues ..He was a class apart … Generous warmest and more… He shall never be forgotten…
    Homer may I have his obituary placed on the OCA website site please ?
    “Sweetie .. enjoy the peace and tranquility in the garden…REST IN PEACE BROTHER..
    A great sportsman … Charging opening bowler ..
    My most heartfelt condolences to Karen, You Homer and Sweetie’s most closest family and even closer buddies .. all of us Cottonians.🙏🙏
