I wrote about my friend Rajan Phanse some time ago to express my admiration for him.
It is with the heaviest of hearts that I write this to announce his passing away on October 8, 2011 fighting to the last in an Intensive Care Unit.
His obituary that appeared in our local newspapers says everything that could be said about him.
“A man who gave generously of his time, love, kindness and money. Caring, inspiring, loved by many, he set aside his troubles and left the world a better place than he found it.”
