News & Notes 763:Thupten
On Saturday 1 September, young Thupten Londen suffered a road accident nearby Pitchandikulam at 1am in the morning in heavy storm and raining conditions. He was 24 years old.
Thupten lived since some 12 years with his sister, Aurovilian Dorjee in Douceur, and helped her out in their Lhasa restaurant. He completed his studies in Future School a few years ago.
He was known as a very amiable, easy going person, always willing to help out, be it by making photos at special occasions, getting folks familiar with their mobile phones etc. His love and skill for photography was apparent.
Before Dorjee took Thupten’s body to their hometown Bailakupe near Mysore in the afternoon of the same day, it was displayed during one hour for a last goodbye at the Crownroad Farewell centre. The great amount of shocked and grieving students and friends attending bore testimony of how much this young man was appreciated and loved.
We pray for his safe passage to the light, and send our warmest support and strength to Dorjee.
