    I do remember his smiling face; but don't know when and where I have seen him. May be in MIT or in UCA cricket training camp.
    Hope he could have had compromised with the turnaround in his life and be content with that. It is always possible; more so, if the family is supportive.

    RIP Alex!
    Overall businesses are down by 40%! Many SMEs have closed down or on verge of closing down! Even eateries are showing 40-50% downfall in business and difficult to sustain!
    Real estate is in doldrums; rates in Mumbai are down by 20% on average!
    Economy is in a structural breakdown!

    Dear Rudolf i fully agree with yu on downfall economic situatin of our beloved country. Howevver, BJP is not accepting this and they label us terrorists and anti nationals if we raise our voice agaisnt falling economy. Whenever we ask them why the financial situation is falling, they say its wrong and its propanganda by oppositions. they ask us to see Ambani/Adani/Modi/Tata etc who are increasing their wealth minute by minute. They say in case of declining financial situuatin how come these industrialists and making millions of dollar in a day. Amit Shah son's assets have increased by 5000 times within one year. He has savings in US, UK, Swiss bank etc.

    It's true all businesses are down by almost 75 %.

    In the past 2 to 3 years , I have made it a point to ask anyone in business how they are faring ?.

    The Answer is the same.... Business down by 75 to 90 % or Total loss.

    Only a very very few are making exorbitance profit at the expenses of these poor businessmen.

    Unfortunately, there seems to be no respite and thinning are only getting worse.

    In fact the down turn in Indian Economy is the cause of downturn of econ my of many countries and the affect is cascading .

    The last to face the downfall are wine shops for obvious reasons, they too are complaining of downfall in business, which means economy is in a tailspin!

    In one, Peenya, industrial area in Bangalore scores of manufacturing cos have closed down already!

    Incidentally, 1% of Indians together hold 70% of the wealth, and their collective wealth is greater than indias budget!

    May be lowered Economic activities and financial commitments. Many small scale business houses are increasingly suffering losses because of slump in business turnover in the market.

    This is getting crazier and bizarre !!! He must have hinted unknowingly, to his family and friends... Most give out signals, regarding their intentions... but only the lucky few, take them seriously and seek the help of a counselor.... RIP !!!

    Its very sad someone you can idolize goes threw such agony and abrupts his life . We can give n number of reason for not committing such act , but only the victim knows the pain he is threw . Having watched Alex since childhood days , he is kind of person anyone can emulate , very humble and down to earth person , with splendid zeal for entrepreneurship , the network he created is amazing . He was and surely is motivation for youngsters who r gutsy and bold enough to venture out of routine job and create something unique , and to give employment for many , if you see his one of initiative where he has offered jobs even on hourly basis , great idea to deal with exponentially increasing job seekers . He had keen interest in cricket and promoted events across youngsters ,

    I bet integrity and honesty has been virtues of his work , may be some times world is too competitive for this , It's very sad to accept this news , may God give his family the grace to face this sorrow and stay strong

    Very sad indeed.
    May his soul rest in peace and family members may get strength to bear the loss.
    Most of us, invest a lot of time in academic and physical education.
    I feel we should invest adequate time in spiritual education as well to balance life's equations.
    It may help us to find solutions to many problems and help avoid possible problems faced by people.
    Survey has revealed that, suicide rate is higher in educated and those lost jobs than in unemployed.
    It means only academic education can't solve many problems but increase dependancy!
