Sun has failed to rise - R.I.P.A well-known statement greeted us regularly whenever a member mentioned a delayed payment-"Sun may fail to rise one day, but ISC will never fail to pay its members on the due day".
I am deeply saddened to convey the news that one of our most popular members is no more, as conveyed through a response in this article, a response that shocked me to the core. Lt Cdr R M Sundaram (Retd), known to all of us as Sun is gone.
Yes, I've had my differences with him and though have never met him personally, when I was informed of that response, I immediately felt a hollowness. Even as I type this, there's a lump in my throat, a tear in my eye.
We'll never forget the varied activities that he came up with for members, some of them very unique, so much so that they were taken up as official contests, or his spirited discussions. We were given glimpses into his life as well, his beloved Padmini, his pet dog, his travels...
We were even awaiting his return after he reported ill health.
Somehow the forum will not be the same again. It has lost its soul.
Adieu, Sun. R.I.P.
Our condolences to his wife and children.
