Priya Agarwal to Shuja
March 29, 2015
I'm sure you're hearing all this with the customary twinkle in your eye
and a smile ready to break out. While we knew each other at SP and
after, it has been recently that we really connected.
For me, the night you came over and we chatted well into dawn will
always remain etched in my memory. Seldom do you find men so in touch
with their perceived frailties with a non judgemental and matter of fact
air. You could do that. We spoke about life and relationships, about
achievement and ambition, about passion and dreams, about the Bangalore
we loved, about dosa joints in Bangalore, about Vidyarthi Bhavan, about
children and parenting, about friendships gained and lost... What came
out loud and strong was the depth of your friendship with Ishviene, an
affection and a bond that transcended all definitions. And your pride
and unconditional love for Zobi.
I was extremely touched by how immediately and staunchly you supported
my fledgling social enterprise and spoke about me to whoever would hear
Energy, Intensity, wit, laughter, philosophy, loyalty ... Some of the
words that come to my mind. Farewell my friend. And see you in the other
Ishviene and Zoheb, the man you loved and lived with was marvellous,
entrepreneurial and free in every way. He is irreplaceable. My love and
hugs to both of you.
