So very sad to say goodbye to Venkat, his wife Subaa has been associated with me in Radaan for many years. Venkat was a kind, strong thinking person and had known him for many years. Subaa fought so hard for his recovery, heartbreaking to see him lose the fight. Prayers for everyone pic.twitter.com/43oorm0lvz
