      I was truly shocked to hear about the passing away of Kahlon (as we referred to him). He was a couple of years junior to me but we met and played golf at the Delhi Golf Club a few years ago. He was a humorous chap with a wry wit and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting him. I had no idea he was suffering from any ailment so his demise has come as a great shock to me. I wish his family the deepest condolences and we will miss that white bearded surdie who always greeted you as if you had never lost touch. Rest In Peace my friend and I am sure you are cracking up the spirit above with your dry sense of humor.
