Hello, namaskara, namastey to everyone..

There is this news that has hit me very hard from this morning. Puneeth Rajkumar sir is no more in between us. Just a 46-year-old man, so well fit, he is known to be showcasing his fitness skills time and again, and inspiring people to be more fit, to be more of a workaholic.. He proved himself with his very energetic performances film after film. He has been an inspiration to many. I am actually in lack of words to be talking about how difficult this is on me to see such a down-to-earth actor who is not in between us anymore. He has been one of the simplest of the actors we have known. I have had a few work experiences with him. I have met him at award functions, I have also met him backstage many a times, I have always felt how simple is this man, how nice is this person to be talking to. But life is so uncertain and unpredictable. This is going to be very, very difficult for his family. It is so difficult for us. I am just very concerned about his family and pray to go that please don’t do these things to anyone, nobody deserves this. I’m really, really saddened and upset.
