Umesh Balani Shuja

March 31, 2015


I remember Shuja for his booming laugh and his willingness to engage in intense discussions on anything. During Insti days I and he would quietly tuck into his mother's biryani and kebabs flown in from Bangalore, before Bhasky and other hungry foodies came looking for their share. The niceness within him was apparent in the open appreciation and the good word he had for everyone. I reconnected with him a few years ago and he was very excited about his new venture. I will remember him as a witty friend, full of life, who always created joy around him.
