Please accept my deepest sympathy for the passing of your loved one. While you are grieving your loss; I hope you will find some comfort in Jesus’ promise to raise up those who are now sleeping in death(John 11:11)restoring them back to life, with the hope of eternal life, on the renewed Paradise earth.-John 5:28,29; Luke 23:43. Until that blessed promise is fulfilled, may Jehovah God grant you peace and comfort, now; during this time of sorrow.-Matthew 5:4.

I am so sorry to hear about the death of Panday as I always call him or knew him by. I knew Panday since age 12 wearing his yelllow kurta and white dhoti with brown leather brief-case in left hand and peddling his father's bicycle to perform a Ghandi in Grove Scheme. Although he was my senior our meetings were brief but yet allowed us to develop a friendship and a long lasting relationship (also with his sibblings)built on mutual understanding and respect. During the time I knew Panday I can surely say that he was very open, tolerant and friedly and showed a willingness to help others, he was never a selfish guy, he was bright and musically talented...a gift that GOD gave him which others may envy but he threw it all away and thus prevented him from being a great singer as Mukesh or Rafi. Had Panday stayed focus and persevere he would done well in his musical career. I cannot help to belabor the point...PANDAY was indeed musically talented. Among other qualities, Panday was always humble, he met you with a sincere smile or greeting and was accommodating,he was a pleasure to meet and to have a conversation with for he was quite articulate and charismatic. One caveat on this, Panday was never good at playing "bumper ball" or cricket but love the sport dearly even though I always put a trashing on him but yet respected my cricket talent that helped to cement our friendship. My sincere and heart felt condolences go to his immediate and extended family. How can I forget Panday?
