With immense grief, we are setting up this fundraiser to support the family of our dear friend Sunil Maurya (MNNIT, 2003 batch). Sunil had traveled from Gurgaon (Gurugram) to his hometown Raebareli (UP, India) in late April'21 and then got infected with Covid. He was initially under home quarantine and seemed to be recovering well until his oxygen level started dropping sharply on 4th May. During these difficult times, he had to be rushed to Lucknow (UP, India) for treatment. He was put on ventilator support on 8th May but his condition continued to deteriorate. Unfortunately, he didn’t recover from that point and breathed his last on 10th May, 2021 in the hospital.
His untimely demise has shattered his family, especially his wife, 5 year old daughter and mother. This is a tragedy of enormous proportions that could have hit any of us in a pandemic and yet nobody can possibly plan for it. It is the hardest grief to hit a parent emotionally. His mother will no longer have the care of her son when she needs it the most. His wife Anshu will never have the support of her friend and partner to live the life they dreamt of together. Little Aashvi will always miss the affection, care and guidance of her dad at every milestone in her life. And while nobody can fill this void in their lives, the only help we can offer is financial support, so that they have one less thing to worry about. Let us come together and contribute to safeguard the family’s future as he was the sole breadwinner of the family.
He was from a small town with a humble family background. Rather than spend his life in comforts of working with a MNC after graduating from MNNIT in 2003, he chose to startup a company for assembling and servicing inverters, UPS and stabilizers. After seeing ups and downs in his startup journey he worked for Control Electric Company, KMG ATOZ, Raychem RPG, Flovel, GET Power and Valmont Structures. His enterprising nature led him to venture into startup again at the start of 2018 called 3D Information Modeling & Engineering (3DIME). The startup operating in the area of LIDAR technology could not survive the pandemic and his investments turned negative thus putting him and his family in financial distress. He joined SKIPPER in Aug 2020.
Sunil had difficulties in his life but he never believed in sharing those. He met those problems with his unmovable confidence, belief in God and persisting attitude. But even in most difficult moments, he hid his pains, not asking anyone for support. He was a family man and was the life of any gathering or group of friends or family and will be dearly missed.
And now when fate has dealt this cruel blow to his family, let us all come together to help them lead their lives with the same dignity that Sunil always maintained.
No contribution is big or small - please do whatever you can to help as every bit is a little step towards partially restoring the unfulfilled common dreams, all of us see for our families.
