T ridip Kumar Sarma passed away on June 11 as a result of long battle with his life. Being born at Guwahati as a noble son to the couple of late Amiya Kumar Sarma and Smti Bulu Devi, late Tridip settled in Bangalore and served as the most diligent and hard working executive in an IT Company, IBM. During his short span of his service carrer, he rendered commendable support to the company as a result of which he was given the opportunity to visit different foreign countries like Spain, Sweden, Switzerland etc. to offer solutions to some crucial projects of his Department.
The Swiss-American psychiatrist and well known pioneer in the near and dear death studies, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross said, “The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not ‘get over’ the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same nor would you want to.”
In fact, the feel of an irreperable loss of Tridip’s nears and dears is truly reflected in the quotation by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross. Tridip, your sudden demise is an irrepairable loss to the family. The void created in your absence can never be filled by any means of the surroundings. You were always unparallel in the way of your life – the struggle and challenge that you faced during your career was really unique in ture. Your simple living style, dedication and sacrifice that you made to your co-passengers will be ever remembered. I pray to the Almighty to be gracious enough to keep your great soul in peace. You will always be remembered.
—Satish Kumar Sarma
