“I am deeply saddened to learn about the sudden, unexpected and untimely demise of Admiral VK Sir, who was many years senior and so was a mentor. He was a remarkable human being who inspired his subordinates to strive for intellectual excellence. I had the privilege of working with him when he was in the Centre, and I was in OTS, and later in the DGMS (Army) Directorate. Being from hospital administration, we later, over the years, met many times during conferences and exchanged WhatsApp messages, though occasionally. I am unaware of what led to his demise, but I accept it as God's will. I am sure being the wonderful human being that he was, Almighty will give him his final resting place at His feet. My condolences go out to his family and loved ones, who will be blessed with the strength to bear this colossal loss, being from his family. Rest in peace, my dear Sir.
Om Shanti.
Om Sadgati
🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾"”
