    He is my far relative. I still remember my one and only meeting with him with respect to my job at the beginning of my career around 20 years back. I went to his office. The way he explained me about the job, ways to grow in career etc. was really good, simple and straight forward. Shocked to know about his demise. Feeling sad :( Om Shanthi.

    Sad news. RIP to the departed soul. I think Mr. Sudhir was a well known personality of Mangalore whose name had a special attraction as far as I know. Quite a popular leader I feel whose loss will be Mangalore's too. May the good Lord give enough strength to his family to bear the unexpected demise.
