It is with great pain and grief that BITSAA announces the tragic demise of Mr. MS Venkatesh. Mr. Venkatesh was battling Dengue fever for over a fortnight when he left this world on September 9th, 2010 at Mumbai hospital. His final rites were performed at his hometown, chennai. He was a 1991 batch student at Pilani Campus. His friends identify him as a cheerful, friendly and outgoing person. During his BITSian days he was well known for being the BITS volleyball team captain and Backstage coordinator.
May his family and friends find the courage to cope with this irrevocable loss and May his soul rest in peace.
Shocked and pained to hear this about Venky. Knew this cheerful and friendly batch mate on campus and a few years later at work in COSL Mumbai (where we once hosted a quiz together). Praying for strength to his family. - Pushpa (91A7...)
A tragically early end to such a bright life, full of potential. Although I did not know him personally, the line from a famous poet comes to mind "... every man's death diminishes me ...", especially that of a fellow BITSian in the prime of his youth.
