Dear Pradip, Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. I was not fortunate to personally meet Kanishka, but remember the long talk that I had with him. He was very pleasant, intelligent and enthusiastic young man. I am sure his selflessness is an extension of all the good deeds that you do. I wish and pray for peace for Kanishka and for all those he left behind.

Words cant describe Kanishka. It is such an unreal moment in our lives right now. Everyday I pray I get a phone call from you telling me this was all a joke. You taught me to not wait to enjoy the moment. Treat everyday and everyone special. I love you Big Bro. I'll see you in my dreams
