Was out of TeamBHP for a week & to see this thread at the top is disheartening. It's as if a part of TeamBHP cracked & fell down.

Haven't met him in person, but felt very familiar & travelled with him through Yeti blogs. RIP Yeti. The number of pages this thread has already grown is an indication of our gratitude.

TBHP won't be the same without him.
Loved his writing style and humor.

R.I.P to a Great Guy.

The friend who forgot his friend's marriage date, flew down from Bangkok just for the wedding and went back. - That was Sam.

Met him as a rank stranger, for the first time, at the Mumbai Mega Madness Meet at Pritam's in 2008 He straighaway offered me what he was having. - That was Sam.

Again met him at the Autocar Performance Show in 2008, there was no distinction from how he met me as against his older and oldest friends. That was Sam.

Helped me arrange and manage a close friends' batchelor gig. Apparently it was a huge hit. That was Sam.

His messages were one of the first when he got to know of a friend's unfortunate incident That was Sam.

He never distinguished between any one who came to him warm heartedly That was Sam.

His writings never fail to bring a smile or make you laugh even today, despite me having read the same Yetiblog over and over. Thats always going to be Sam.

One of the best human beings who walked into our lives. - Thats always going to be Sam.

Discussing some great food places, found out he knows the owners of the place for a huge while, humility Thats always going to be Sam.


I'll repeat what he told TheOne which was his message as well " Be positive and have love in your heart" and only great things will happen to you.

This was the last song played at the memorial service.

Perfectly in sync with his huge personality.

To all of us still on earth and missing him like hell!

Goodbye Sam.

I thought of suggesting the traditional minute of silence for Sam, then it occurred to me how much happier he would be if we had a minute of laughter in his memory.

Just now, though, all I can manage is a tear.

Someone who clearly enjoyed and tried to live his life to the fullest. A sad loss indeed.

Very shocking to hear this!

Met him once at Bangalore in one of the Auto Expo, very cheerful & energetic individual!
Will truly be missed here...

The Yetiblogs were always a super hit and all of us will miss Sam and his blogs.

I have a suggestion - Why don't we have a prize for the best Travelogue in Sam's memory? Let the Mod team, D-Bhpians & Sr-Bhpians select a stipulated number of Tlogs and we will have a vote to select the best log.

Didn't know that my first posting on T-BHP would be a condolence message.

RIP Sam. Miss you.
