I feel honoured to have known and worked with Sumit. He was so kind and sweet and I miss him still.

He came, He conquered (our hearts) and He left. As someone very closely related to him, I had the privilege of knowing him from close quarters. Although I am his father's cousin but due to his being just one and a half year younger to me, he was more of a kindred soul to me. I will always remember him…
