Very sorry to hear the sad news of the untimely passing away of Viswanath. We got the news, already. Know him, from his School days, in Kolkata. His Parents, Sister also well known to us. Sri Puchumoney (Ex UCO Bank, Kolkata), is a good family friend of ours. We Pray God to grant eternal peace to the departed Soul. Also we are praying Almighty to grant enough strength and courage to all family members to withstand this irreparable/untimely loss. Not getting sufficient words to console Sri. Puchumoney. OM SHANTHI. (From Rajamani, as Sri Puchumoney knows me). T.S. Subramanian and Bhageerathy, S. Now at Coimbatore.

Myself & V.Pichumoney, both were working in UCO Bank, H.O. and in fact, our taxes were adjacent in year 1971 and I used to know about the whole family and have seen Vishwanath as a School going boy during my younger days and today I received information this morning about the tragic demise of Vishwanath in a plane crash. My deepest condolences to the entire family including the parents for bearing such loss. And, let Almighty give enough strength to overcome such a mishap.
