Shankar Mahadevan has been a colleague and friend of ours working with us on many projects for the past few years. It is unfortunate that Shankar succumbed to Covid related illess and passed away last Sunday. Many of us have known him to be a soft-spoken, responsible and hard-working team mate. He had been maintaining a positive attitude through out his Covid treatment about his recovery but sadly was taken away too soon. He is survived by his wife and a son, who is 11 years old. He was the sole bread winner for the family. Remembering the friendship we have shared with him, we would like to help his bereaved family with some financial assistance. This fund raising campaign is towards that and we earnestly request all of you who have known him to contribute. His passing away is an irreparable loss to his wife and little son, but providing this financial assistance to ease their future is what we can all do.
