My most vivid memories of Shaolin were somewhere around 1996-7 when uncle Ranjan was posted at Calcutta. I remember Shaolin sitting in front of the tv and memorizing all the ads. Since then, everytime I met uncle, he talked about Shaolin and gave us updates on his life. Shaolin was a closed person. Not the easiest to figure. Though the only thing I knew for sure, from all the conversations with his parents was that, he was an achiever, a fighter and somebody who would never give up or accept defeat easily. The circumstance of his death has hurt me more than I can imagine.
I regret that I did not make an attempt to call on the phone to check up on how he was doing, since we were living just 11 hours drive away from one another. I wish I could have in some way prevented the day he left us..
Dear Shaolin, you have reminded me yet again, that life is transient and death inevitable. I hope you continue to achieve your dreams wherever you are now.. Rest in peace brother.

I last saw Shaolin many years ago when he was still a boy. We talked about his fondness for tennis and what all he was going to do when he grows up. It is very difficult to come to terms with all that has happened.

I am privileged to have been given the opportunity to arrange his last journey home. In that process, what I found about him was truly heart warming. I spoke with many of his colleagues and employers as I try to piece together what he stood for, what he wanted to achieved and I am left with nothing but respect and admiration for him. He was fiercely independent, hardworking and has achieved a lot in his short life. I know his parents are heartbroken and our families are truly saddened by his loss. He will be truly missed.
Many of our cousins live in different countries and with time we all have drifted apart. This tragedy has brought us all back together and we thank you for that Shaolin. May your soul rest in peace.

Shaolin, your smile as you picked up the Indian food at my office in SVU is still in my memory. Rest in Peace. My sympathies are with the loved ones mourning your sudden and shocking passing.

I enjoyed playing tennis with him at SVU. He definitely made the team a lot better and contributed well to it. It was always fun when Shaolin was laughing or having a good time in tennis, eating food together, or on trips. It was good to know him and my condolences for the family.

I’ll never forget Shaolin’s great smile and laugh that he showed often when we played tennis and ping pong together. He was a great man and he will be missed.

Finding the right words to mark the passing of a dear friend who was more like a brother to me, is always a difficult task. It is even harder for me to accept the death of a loved one, especially when you didn’t have the chance to say goodbye and when he was taken so suddenly. Shaolin was an outstanding tennis player and a wonderful human being. May his soul rest in peace.
