Just to give an idea of his prolific, gamut-spanning and wholly irreverant and hilarious contributions to TBHP, here are the threads started by him:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/search...rchid=16010032

My personal favourite is when he takes out his new Skoda Superb's umbrella and thinks 'paisa vasool'! :-)

Even if this particular search ID is temporary, simply search for threads started by him {Sam Kapasi} in the advanced search page.

Sam, TEAM-BHP wont be the same again without you! Your comments, your thoughts & most importantly your humour would be remembered forever.

Guess God wanted always wants to keep the best for himself. Rest in Peace Sam.

One of the MOST respected person for his deeds, columns and for his out of the world sense of humor, I shall miss you SAM like many others on Team-BHP. A shocking news, completely unexpected. Too difficult to explain the feelings after reading so much from you, about you Jenny. May your soul rest in peace. You will always be remembered in my heart. May GOD give Jenny enough strength to overcome this moment of grief.

I wholeheartedly agree to this. Wherever he is, Sam will not be happy with the sadness and grief.

Also, I request fellow members not add any RIP signatures (see Sam’s post below):

I opened the Times of India newspaper today and was shocked to see Sam Kapasi's obituary. God bless his soul. We will miss you out here on Team-BHP. My condolences to his family.

I have been an avid reader of the Yeti blog and have enjoyed reading each and every post.

"In my true belief, no person is ever completely mature till he/she has seen and lived in a culture that is far removed from the one one he was raised in. I pray that my future family, my next generation has the same opportunities I did/do and has the desire to grab each one as it comes.

Me, I simply want to see every single place in this world before I die. It will not be unique, many men and women have done it before me. But this is my ultimate goal. Not to visit, but to spend a little time in every country of the world before I die, whenever it may be."
Sam Kapasi, 3rd May 2011

Yep, he did live and lived well ! R I P

It is unbelievable and filled me with sadness, it is very painful, in a deep part of the heart. Though I never knew Sam personally but followed his posts / threads regularly. He symbolised the T-BHP spirit and was a key part of the community. Though, I am sure he will never like to see us sad and grieving, but you cannot control your emotions, the numbness will not go away soon.

RIP big man, you gave us a lot and you will continue to live in our memories forever!

I havent read this entire thread yet, but here's something Sam put in his Rover thread.

Scary but true. All I can say is RIP Sam and lets live life to the fullest. Now is everything. You never know the future.

To be honest, I'm not really an off-roader in the true sense of the word.

I see on this forum. People wake up Sunday morning and drive their vehicles through the roughest, unmotorable roads.
I see people flinging themselves into huge pits and mucky slush just to prove to themselves that they can drive in and out of this with their driving skills and the capability of their 4X4s.

Yes I do understand - it is a sport, a game I guess - but that sort of thing doesn't really excite me. It's not my thing.

I don't think I'll ever join an Team-BHP OTR, to be honest. I don't think I'll enjoy climbing up and down the same mountain in a 4X4. You know what, I don't even think I'd know HOW to do that.

I'd probably kill myself and destroy a good car.
