Garu Pundalic Naique ji''s sad demise is really heartbreaking news for all Indians. Pray to God to rest his soul in peace. Wonder why he was not in contact with his family/relative for such a long time! However, it is always good to keep details of family or next to kin (whom can be contacted in emergencies inside the passport.

My NRI Colleagues, please don''t follow this way at all as long as we stay abroad.
More than 80% of bachelors use sharing accommodation while abroad with no close relatives with them, It is mandatory to share at least 1 contact number of our relatives (of abroad or India) with our room-sharing partner.
