The Demise of a Gentleman

I am going to talk about a Genius personality who is no more to day on earth. In brief, I can say that he was a Local Hero of his time. My relation with him was undefined, but I’ll name it as Friendship. He was Mr. Ahmadbhai Palasara of Kanodar who died at 44.

I had written a letter of Condolence to the Late’s united family then. The entire letter with prior permission of his family members is represented here which itself is self explanatory to know the Late better.

“Dear family members of the Late Janab Ahmadbhai,

We are very sorry for the passing away of Ahmadbhai, untimely and all of a sudden amongst us. We hope you may find some comfort in our message of condolence.

In these moments of great sadness, we pray to the Almighty God with the medium of the Infallibles to rest the departed soul amongst His chosen ones, in the proximity of the Infallibles and amongst the souls of those people who enjoy the mercy and pleasure of Him. Surely, from God we come and to Him shall we return.

The Late is now in need of the prayers and charity behind him for heavenly comfort and peace. We do hope that you may find understanding by our Faith and as time goes by that you all the family members are not to forget the loss, but to ease the pain.

Our family as well as business relationships had caused to sit together for hours with him frequently and we had the discussions about various topics from personal ones to all aspects of human life. He was a friend, philosopher and guide for anybody who might approach him for any problem which confused him. He was a genius fellow with God-gifted personality and intelligence. He had the solutions of any problem at his tongue-tip. I have come across so many personalities, but never witnessed such a fine, emotional, far-seeing and plain hearted fellow like Ahmadbhai. While many people live on the wings of fancy, he was a result-oriented man, a man of firm decision and a man putting the thoughts into action. His passing away causing us to weep behind is felt like sliding of earth from-under our feet, but our religious and particularly our community school of thought teaches us to surrender ourselves to the will of the God.

Summing up, please don’t hesitate for any kind of services from our end, as and when needed, as it becomes your right and our duty owing to multiple interwoven relations between our two families.

With Deepest Sympathy,



Dated: 29th July, 1997

Lastly, a message to my Blog Readers as follows:
