Trip down memory lane with Kittoo Mama!
Another memory I fondly remember with Kittoo mama is taking me with him on my first flight ever when I was 12 years to Bombay as Meena Athai was there, expecting with Akshaya! It was fun and that was also the first time in a long time that I had quality “Mama” time - just the 2 of us! He took me to the Taj hotel (again first time ever for me there!) and gateway of India telling me interesting stories throughout our journey across the city as he had lived in Bombay during his schooling years! I also remember how I almost lost him at VT station as I ran to sit in the local train, window seat and suddenly he was missing. Fortunately, the train didn’t leave, I spotted him and I ensured that no way I’m going to leave his side! He never scolded me, but I vaguely remember he getting a earful from Meena Athai when we got home! Lol! However he just looked at me smiling.
I remember how he used to drive, taking Meena athai & me late night in Bangalore to Richie Rich Ice cream parlour to eat Butterscotch ice cream sundae!!!
His laughter was always infectious, loud and unique! Unforgettable! I am so glad that he spent quality time with me, some unforgettable moments with my daughter- Ananyah, especially when he was in Bangalore alone for a short trip! He used to practice Tai Chi and my little one probably she was 3 or 4, was imitating his tai chi steps early in the morning along with him! Lol!
As Akshaya reminded us all of my gentle Bear of an uncle, I don’t think I can ever forget his mysterious affection towards me and his unique laughter! Thank you for being there in my life and giving me wonderful moments to cherish always!

Kittoo and I go back to 1985 when we both started our respective careers at Price Waterhouse Bangalore. Kitto was family for me during my bachelor days in Bangalore.From 1985 to 1989 Kittoo probably spend more time in our bachelor pad than with his own parents. That bonding has been there for these years till now. When i went to his Shewsbury residence in May 2019 and left his house I had mixed feelings... my mind said that he that he may not be with us for long but my heart did not want to let go of a beloved friend. When i used to go for audits with him he used to carry two bags, one small bag for his clothes and a big bag for his books. what a voracious reader he was. During my professional days lot of my knowledge on art, history, music, books, astrology, movies, Japanese martial arts has mostly come from just listening to him. I used to love working alongwith him. Thanks to him I joined DEC computers later and we were a great team together. After Kittoo went to US our lifes went apart but we were in constant touch with each other. He would make it a point to visit Mumbai every time he came to India, although his base was Bangalore. Kittoo... I will really miss you, but hoping that this parting was God's will to take you away from the physical pain of your illness that you were going through. Your childlike smile will always be etched in my mind. Rest in peace. Adios my friend... Loney

A true friend and a gentleman.

Remembering all those days we spent watching football games and thriller movies.
Discussing astronomy, mythology & technology.
Your taste for fine music systems and knowledge on Roman history and literature.
And of course, those travels during New England summer, having great food and drinks.

All these will be cherished forever and will be missed.

Adios my friend, rest in peace !!
