Surendra Nath Kaul: 5th February 1923 - 6th December 1997.
My Father, my Hero, Brilliant scholar, Sportsman, Actor, Writer, Director, Orator, Mathematician, Teacher....the list of his talents is endless, but above all, he was a kind, gentle and loving soul, a wonderful human being always ready to help, be it with his warm words and kindly smile or with a bit more...
Although unable to achieve his full potential in material terms, partly due to the fact that success to him denoted a passion for his work more than the other peripherals and partly due to his unobtrusive, non aggressive, gentlity which allowed for the more pushy and often less talented to get through.
However, he was a man who left an indelible impression on the heart and minds of all those whose lives he touched, leaving them marveling at the pure genius of his mind and his dazzling personality.
As for me, his contribution to the shaping of my life and ideology is a debt I can never repay.
Today, he would have completed 81 and this is a copy from a picture of him, in his prime! He will always be remembered with love and fondness by his family and friends.
May God Bless his immortal soul...
