I can't stop replaying in my head the last conversation I had with V. G. Siddhartha on the flight to Udaipur; he was always smiling, humble & dignified. It’s an unimaginable loss for his family, friends & India’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. #RIPSiddhartha; may God bless your soul.

Father Slipping Into A Comma:-
Eventually, he was the only child of Gangieh and Vasanthi Hedge who worked hard to achieve what he had. Being a farmer’s son insufficient resources were available for him. Not accepting his fate he left Bengaluru decades ago, with a pledge to never return to his village. However, he had to return to meet his ailing father admitted to a hospital in Mysore. Although the unexpected demise of such a successful entrepreneur went every corner yet his father remains unaware. Therefore, reports say his father is suffering from age-related illness and is slipping into a coma.
Siddhartha’s long-time associate, Raghavendra said,
“He had imbibed good qualities from his father as a child. Gangaiah Hedge taught all virtues to his son. Siddhartha always made his father proud. It is a tragedy that he cannot participate in his son’s cremation. In a way, it is good that he is not in a position to understand anything. God has saved him from this trauma.”
Just imagine the kind of fate a father has, that he cannot even look at his son for the last time?
To summarize this is a dark hour and for this time it didn’t happen over a coffee. #RIPSir
