News & Notes 752:Sakthivel has passed
Sakthivel has passed
On 14 June, our good friend and brother, Aurovilian Sakthivel Ramasamy, suffered a stroke and passed away at AUM Hospital due to a long struggle with kidney failure. He was just 41 years old.
Hailing from Kottakarai, Sakthivel came to work in Auroville in 1996 and officially joined in 2003. After working at Solar Service, he started working at Solar Kitchen overlooking the building’s entire machinery practically from the beginning. His friendly nature and ever willingness to help out, made him a much appreciated and loved member of the Solar Kitchen team. He will be dearly missed.
Sakthivel lived with his wife Mala and their children, Santhan and Madhan, in Sve Dame. The twins are just about to enter NESS. Our warmest condolences go out to the family.
The body was buried at Auroville’s burial grounds at Adventure in the afternoon of Friday 15 June.
