The sudden demise of Narayan Keshavan on 13th November 2003 has shocked us all. His dynamism in actively promoting the cause of friendship between the United States and India will always be remembered by the Embassy of India. On hearing of this untimely demise, Ambassador Mansingh expressed his deep grief and shock and said "We have lost an excellent journalist; a tireless advocate for democracy and freedom; and above all a sincere friend of India." Mr. Keshavan lived by Burke' s maxim 'all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing'. We shall miss him. Our condolences go to members of his bereaved family and we pray to give them the courage and fortitude to bear this irreplaceable loss.
