The sudden and untimely demise of Unniappachettan last month was shocking and painful. It was a personal loss to me. He was my friend, guide and well-wisher. He was neighbor in my village. But, our friendship and interactions started in 1970 when I was working in Federal Bank and he was working in KSEB in same place. In most evenings we used to stroll together discussing various matters – personal and common. He was a very pleasing, empathetic and humorous person. Our natures were always complimentary. We worked together in the village for the successful conduct of the temple festival when the community was unable to do that due to lack of funds and cooperation. After my transfer to Kolkata we were away for many years. Thereafter we used to meet only when I used to go to my native village for seeing my aging parents. Of course we met during the wedding of our children. He was also abroad for few years on some other assignment. After retirement he utilized his free time in educating young and old. He studied the old scriptures like Vedas and Upanishads and taught others. During our rare meetings thereafter we used to interact on our rich heritage. His erudition of Upanishads has impressed me a lot. Lastly our close interaction was around 2007- 08 when he came to Chennai for the placement of his niece Ramya. This brought our families closely and eventually we could arrange an alliance for Ramya in Chennai. His wife, who was his all time companion passed away untimely in the first week of January. Her sudden death came as terrible shock to him. I was there to console him. Even though he was composed at that time I could gather the deep pain of his mind. Before his children leave after the last rites he could also leave peacefully from this world.  I lost my good friend.

Lord Krishna says: “An erudite person who is a friend to all, seeing all equally and finding God in every living thing will also leave peacefully from this world “. Unniappachettan was one person like that.
