All of us are just around the milestone of 30 years. 30 is when we run the fastest in our life race. We get married, plan families, build our career. There’s no room to pause. It’s as if life is certain and we are in control.

A car, an unfortunate accident, a fatal collision, 40 days of struggle and finally Siladitya (Silu) called it quits. We are sure he didn’t want to. (Click here to know more

God or Fate - whatever we choose to call it is ironic! On one hand, it gives us 4 amazing years of our life where every one of us got a second family. On the other hand, it takes a family member far far away.

Good or bad, life moves on. But here I plead, let's stop being busy for a minute, rewind our lives and remember the amazing time we had. Think of those with whom we laughed, we cried, we fought, we danced and realized they were never just friends but more than that.

Silu was a good guy, probably the one who taught us what being good meant. Let’s keep him in the race. Let him be a reminder that each one of us owes a part of our lives to those 4 years and the people who shared it with us.

We have planned to start a memorial award for Silu at NIT Rourkela. With due consultation with Dr. Subudhi, Dean of Alumni relations at NIT Rourkela, there will be an annual award given out (The details of the award would be figured out soon based on the total amount raised). Let’s all pitch in. 

Salute, To those 4 years. To Siladitya.
