  1. Sathi was one of the first officers when I joined Telco in 1975. He struck me as a serious but kind, helpful and friendly person, whenever I approached him for advice. My sincere respects and may God grant
    ‘सद् गति’ to the departed soul.

  2. Dear Saroj,
    Please accept our heartfelt condolences on your loss.
    I am Pappa’s (pelathope) sister from USA.
    I hope and pray that Time will help you find peace.
