I have come back to this thread like a zillion times since yesterday evening; still does not sink in. And all of this for a chap I saw only once and that too fleetingly during this year's Autoexpo in Delhi.
A true rockstar.

Shocked.

Met him once, still remember his words "...you wont get time, you have to make out some time..."

RIP Sam.

It had been a daily routine for me for the last 2 months ever since my membership was approved: reach office at around 10, start my computer, first log in to T-Bhp and check for new posts/favorite threads. Did the same thing today and got a horrible shock.

Just on Saturday had gone through his Oktoberfest thread and had been dreaming of visiting places like he did. I think we have all kinds of people on our forum, experts in cars, bikes, music systems, anything mechanical/electrical/electronic imaginable, but there will not be a person whose writing skills will keep you glued to the screen and at the same time make you laugh so much that people around will think you have gone mad.

This was a man who lived life to its fullest, a perfect example of the phrase "Live life king size", a man with a heart of gold, who believed in being happy and keeping others happy. The void left by him is impossible to fill up. I think God must have thought that T-Bhpians have had too much fun, now its my turn.

Quoting a Raj Kapoor classic:

Ek din bik jaayega maati ke mol
Jag mein reh jaayenge pyaare tere bol.

May God rest his soul in eternal peace.

Request to moderators: Please create a separate thread with links to all of Sam's blogs until now.

Shocking and unbelievable, the man whose threads inspired me to attempt multiple times to become a member of the forum is no more. RIP Sam, you will be missed by one and all on the forum.

Does anyone know what happened, and why the new tyres blow up?

OMG ... what a shocker! Had been a almost mute member of this forum but had developed such a liking for Sam!

Rest in peace Sam. You're loved and will be loved always.

I was fortunate to meet him once in auto expo 2010 at his JBL stall. He had completed his much famous Delhi-Mumbai journey in Tata Nano. True to his name and personality he met me and my wife very warmly when I mentioned Team-Bhp.

Shocked to hear the news. You will be missed Sam. RIP.
