Vaishakh was killed in a car crash, leaving his wife widowed and leaving behind his 2 gorgeous girls.

Here's my story, it's a lot easier than Komal's story.

I met Komal through work at Spark. We didn't share the same teams or managers, just the same floors. Soon we were taking breaks together and formed a very good friendship. Since then we moved buildings and cities and recently weren’t so much in touch. Until last Monday, Komal shared on Facebook how she lost somebody 3 months ago. She had her family photo on that post, while I'm reading, I kept asking why she would put a photo of her family on a post like that, while trying to figure out who she had lost. It torn my heart to realize she had lost her husband in a car accident while on a holiday to India. The post said something that will be a burden on my heart for a very long time and I quote "...I got the phone call about the accident; having to tell Avikkutty (her 6 year old) that we were not going to India to surprise papa but to say our final goodbye. That was the toughest and worst moment of my life"

Vaishakh Nambiar, who was also my colleague, died in a car accident. The car fell off the cliff to a gorge, his body was not found for 3 days. She said goodbye to him, thinking she'll be joining him later for holidays in India, but she could never see him again. When he was found, the body was in a condition that they couldn't wait. This is something we read in the news, but this was happening to my friend and I had no clue. He died 3 months ago, I wasn't there for her, I had no clue. She always told me she doesn't like to ask for help, but not even me I thought? My friend is now left with a 6 and a 1 year old. Nothing can replace a dad, a husband or a son. But if you could, just even a dollar or two, donate for my darling friend, it'll mean the world to her. She needs support, her two girls need support. Please share and raise as much as you can.
