yet, can't believe this has happened. Everyone who travelled in that vehicle apart from Sam Kapasi is safe. Seems like a bad dream, except that those close to Sam have to live it.

This is such a shocking news. I was away from Team-BHP for long time. Though i did not know him personally, i followed him in his threads on the forum and such a integral part of Team-BHP he was.
My deepest condolences to the family. Rest in peace Sam.

Completely shocked. Just came to know as have been unable to spend much time with team-bhp in the recent past. I can never forget the enthusiasm with which I followed his Nano blog from Mumbai to Delhi. The write ups were very impressionable and intrumental in our buying a Nano . I will miss Sam for his delightful blogs.My deepest sympathies to his family. I pray to God to give his family the strength to bear this irreplaceable loss.

You were an inspiration "sameer" for me to join this community.
I came here every night just to review some activity and to read your posts and sleep peacefully.
The day i heard this news, i was literally in shock.
For a few minutes, i was like what's this?
Sam cannot leave us so early..
But had to accept the hard truth..
Rest In Peace Sam..
You will be deeply missed..
God Give much needed strength and support to the family..

Been away from Team BHP for too long, only got time to post brief posts, and could only make time today to go through the threads.

I didn't know Sam personally, nor did get the opportunity to meet him in the couple of meets I could attend, but I did go through some of his threads and they gave an insight into a wonderful person.

If we all, who only knew Sam as an online existence grieve so much, I can't imagine what his family must be going through. My thoughts and prayers will be with them.

Zindagi lambi nahi, badi honi chahiye. Sam was a living example of it, if the online tribute is any proof.

By the way, I too am curious to know what exactly happened.

Yesterday, I'd completed adding all of Sam's and Jenny's threads ( close to 140 threads )to my favourites list and I'm reading them one after another. Now I get it why many people on this thread have mentioned that Sam had lived life largely. I had the same pain in my heart after completing the novel "P.S.I LOVE YOU" written by Cecilia Ahern.
Such a giftted person, leaving all of us too early is fate !
I really cannot stop myself from posting repeatedly in this thread, Sam. Every post of yours leaves me astonished. Such talent, language, charm and brilliance, all gone in an instant! I still feel bad that I could not talk to you atleast once !
RIP Sam Buddy, RIP.

Can destiny be so cruel? He was so full of life..

I havent been very regular here in past few months and just stumbled upon this..
I am honestly devastated. Though we never met, he played a big influence here and inturn, in our lives. You really regret some losses - this one belongs to the top of the list.

Rest in peace, bro!

I saw this when i was on a vacation and was speechless. This is not a way a bright flame should get extinguished.

RIP Sam. May god give your family strength. You will be missed. Things you wrote was followed by me like a small kid reading a novel. Your story of life was an inspiration. You taught us the way to live.

Will always remember you.

Maddy

Shocking news!! Sam was a brilliant audiophile. He cannot be replaced in this forum. He was a priceless asset to Team BHP.

My heartfelt condolences to his family.

May his soul R.I.P

I was really shock to read this today. My deepest condolences to his family.

I read this today in Autocar India and could not believe it. We will surely miss you Sam. You were a gem of a person and a true automobile enthusiast. I loved the Yeti blogs a lot. Will miss you.

RIP , Sam.
Though I never met him in person, have read and enjoyed quite a few of his posts here. Leaves me a little disturbed each time someone directly or indirectly known meets an unfortunate fate, as with several bikers in the last couple of years. Such is the fragility of life.

So much happening since my last log in. I don't think this particular accident , was reported in the newspaper (TOI) , was it?

There was an obituary in TOI.
