With unbearably heavy heart I am writing this. Mr Devdas Adidela one of the best friends of mine passsed away today in Hyderabad. He was just 50.
I knew him since 1992 and we were like brothers though we share no blood relationship. Ambedkar Scholarships started with his help. When I was looking for someone to help me and found none to come forward to shoulder responsibility, it was he who helped lay its foundations. He was one of the good-heated persons I knew in my entire life.
Though he left Ambedkar Scholarships due to trivial differences two years ago, we have remained to be good friends. When I was in India, I met him couple of times. When I called him on Dec 25 to wish him Merry Christmas, I felt he was happy as ever. I never imagined that the end is so near.
I am still unable to recover from the death of my younger brother whom I lost in May 2010. This news coupled with my brother's death is a big blow to my orale and feel as if I am also dead. It is too much my frail heart.
Why good people go so early? Unanswered question!
I have very few friends in my life; with Devdas I lost a good friend, a brother, and above all a good human.
With heavy heart,
Benamin Paul Kaila
