News & Notes 716:Kanniappan
Yesterday I received the news that Kanniappan had passed away. I was shocked. He came to work for me in the early eighties as a tambi. That was in Abri - I came to know him as a quiet fellow and a bit shy as well. I left Abri and he remained. The last time I saw him was in 2009 when I was on a short visit to AV. He was married and had a daughter and his own workshop! I must say that I was impressed. Sadly that is cut short now. My thoughts and commiseration go out to his wife and daughter. And Kanniappan, wherever you are I will remember you.
