The Saksena family was yet to recover from the loss of Saurabh's father who was suffering from Covid-19 and passed away in Lucknow on 22nd April when Saurabhs condition ( who was also suffering from Covid ) started deteriorating . His Oxygen level dipped and had to be hospitalized on 26th April in ICU ar Midland Hospital. He battled hard for 12 days in ICU and the doctors and the family members left no stone unturned to help him win this battle but the infection never went down . He developed complications on 7th May and was put on Ventilator support . He could not wake up to see the Sunrise of 8th May and our friend breathed his last on 7th - 8th night.
Saurabh passed away at a very young age of 40 leaving behind his old mother, three sisters, his wife and his 7 year old son. Anyone who came in contact with Saurabh was left awestruck by how intelligent ,talented yet humble he was. I knew him from the closest of quarters and Saurabh was someone who gave his all to anything he signed up for without expecting anything in return. If you are someone who knew him, I am sure you will agree that he was one of the most selfless individuals you would have ever met.
Saurabh, being a Harvard and an ASU alumni, could have been making the big bucks working in the USA but left everything behind and moved to India to care for his aging parents. He just wanted to take care of his parents and make sure his son, Viaan, studies hard and gets the best possible education.
Let us all come together with open hearts and folded hands to help Shubhi ( Saurabhs' wife) fulfill and realise Saurabhs' dreams and wishes.
