My name is Murali Narasani, a close friend of Swarup Ballani. Those near and dear to him are deeply shocked and distraught, and would have never imagined a day like this would arise. Swarup left this world on 5/17 succumbing to COVID after a long fight.

Swarup was a very honest, humble person who was always soft spoken and looked to help anyone and everyone. He made an immediate, everlasting impression on anyone who met him with his contagious smile and kind greetings. In my association with him for past 26 years I have never came across a person who was not positively impacted by him, his impact was profound on the people surrounding him with his caring and selfless nature. No matter what we all know that we could count on him..

Swarup was working in USA for few years before he was forced to go back to India (Hyderabad) due to his deteriorating health and also the need to be closer to his parents. Swarup was battling his health issues prior to getting infected with COVID, that kept him out of job for more than couple of years since he moved to Hyderabad.

He leaves behind wife Sowsilya, who single handedly tried to take care of Swarup and their beloved son Rithul (8 yrs old). She is recovering from COVID herself now. Sowsilya is the sole breadwinner of the family for last couple of years. He fought bravely for more than 2 weeks after being moved to the hospital and then to ICU until the oxygen levels dropped suddenly. Medication could not prevent the lung infection ultimately leading to cardiac arrest which he could not survive despite our best efforts. It was very excruciating for family to digest the loss of such a caring member of the family and this moving picture of pain will remain in our minds forever.

Swarup was 45 years old and gone far too soon. The entire family is absolutely shattered, and his wife Sowsilya is dazed, crying and grieving the loss of her beloved husband. She is the only one left to take care of the kid and ailing in-laws, but needs desperate help with moving forward. Sowsilya has started working as an admin assistance out of desperation to help the family. Unfortunately, she now has to single handedly take care of everyone around her. She is yet to recover from this grief, gather up courage and motivation. Knowing Sowsilya, I am sure that she will pull herself up and rest of the family with her sheer determination and never say die attitude.

We are trying to raise funds for the immediate expenses and emergency needs and for the purpose of the current and future educational expenses of his son. It will take some time and few months for Sowsilya to recover from this loss and able to stand on her feet. Sadly, he did not have any major life insurance coverage or such to take care of his dependents as he was out of work for a while. We will have to do something that triggers the hope and positivity for this needy family. And so, we urge all the friends, acquaintances, and well-wishers of Swarup to contribute.
