Oh no, very sad to hear. He had enthusiastically participated in a public program when i visited a few weeks ago.
A deeply compassionate, committed social reformist, who often told me about his association with my parents.
He was very fond of & always encouraged me.
Om Shanti🙏🙏 https://t.co/qvmkjizOLk
