Answering the call of the Divine, following a sudden illness, our loving and ever-cheerful father, Shri Kanu Gohain parted entirely unexpectedly from us – his two sons, daughters-in-law, a grandkid and numerous relatives and friends. He responded to the same call our doting mother had received only a year earlier.
At this hour of our grief-stricken trial we have received overwhelming support and good wishes from our kin and friends. We offer our heartful thanks to them, many of whom we have not been able to meet personally to express our gratefulness. Many of them knew our father from the time he had to fend for himself, all alone, by offering tuition to youngsters to the time he took up challenges to carve out a new path in India’s aviation arena, rising to the post of Director General of Civil Aviation, the first Assamese to do so.
Our memories of his unstinted affection for us and the guidance and encouragement he offered us to face the world will remain with us forever.
Shri Kaushik Gohain
