Give NK his due...
NK has won the British Formula-Ford championship, Formula-Asia championship, placed 4th in both the British Formula 3 & Formula Nissan World Series, has won A1GP races at Zuhai & Brands-Hatch (from pole !). And most recently, came in 6th in the Le Mans series race at Spa.
NK will always be India's first racer in F1, I'm not sure if any JC fans remember his remark in his Indian episode of 'Jeremy Clarkson's Motorworld', where he introduces us as a country which has never raced in F1. And how many nay-sayers remember that when NK tested for Williams in 2006 (Spain ?), he comprehensively out-paced the much touted Nico Rosberg. It was a bitter disappointment (to me atleast) when NK was not chosen to drive for Force-India.
As a motoring community, I think the least we can do is to support NK at this juncture & hope that he's able to race again, soon.
P.S. - The only thing I hold against NK is missing the podium in the 2005 US-GP.

Quite the contrary. Narian's career was severly disadvantaged compared to his European peers because India back then had no karting infrastructure, no local championship, no proper tracks or a proper ladder series. At 17 he started pretty late compared to the Buttons and Alonsos , came from a then 3rd world country and still did a great job.
