Farewell Atul Chitnis

Atul Chitnis

Atul Chitnis

Back in 1994/1995 – Bhopal I was a shy, under-confident, docile kid with no mentor. Even though I was in English medium school, we barely spoke English. Same year, I joined Bombay LUG and there I met Atul Chitnis

A Strong minded, articulate Technology Guru. Somebody who could talk on anything, and fiercely debate if he believed in something often bruising egos. I never met him in person but frequently hopped his site. Time flew and i got busy with life.

Yesterday i went back to my old archives to see LUG silent with the last response from Atul. When I did a google, i came to know that he had a stomach cancer and passed away on June 2013. I was in deep state of shock for the entire night.

Wherever you are Atul- I know you will be different there too. To somebody who has a play in whatever small I am today, My respect.

Closing with his favorite quote~ “You are not remembered for what is expected of You
