Re: Ajita Kamal
Sad to hear the shocking news. India has lost a great champion of free thought. On his last visit to Coimbatore city we were planning to meet but somehow it did not materialize.Sadly I will never get another opportunity to meet him.

I am deeply saddened by Ajita's death. I met him for the first time in NY and spent a wonderful evening with him listening to Richard Dawkins Live. I video-taped him interviewing RD. He was such a passionate force that it's hard to ever forget him. He later visited my house; Meera Nanda and Ravi joined us making it a memorable evening. I cannot fathom the impact of his loss on "Nirmukta."

My deep condolences to Ajita Kamal's family and friends. I am really shocked with this news. May be I had very little communication with him but I have great respect, honor for his style of approach for whatever communication I had with him. Definitely Nirmukta community will always miss him.

That's so sad man, just in our last SENHS he was informing us telling us about that, when we had told him about Mr dawkins visiting jaipur, he was so excited to hear the news, he told us that his previous meet with dawkins was not properly planned,but he had got email of his secretary and had talked to him some times, he was going to email his secretary , he wanted to tell dawkins how much nirmukta has developed since he last met him, he wanted to tell him that he has got http://richarddawkins.net/articles/4769-biocentrism-demystified-a-response-to-deepak-chopra-and-robert-lanza-39-s-notion-of-a-conscious-universe published at his site, then he laughed and said it was basically Dr. vadhwan's article but he co-authored so he can proudly mail that to dawkins.Shit man.He never lived to live that.

This is really shocking news. I just can't believe it. My sincere condolences to his family members. It was Ajita who really introduced many of us to Atheism Activism. I can't imagine what impact his loss will have on Nirmukta and our cause.
This was really untimely. I just don't have words to express my sadness!

What a sad, sad day! I knew Ajita only through e-mail but his warmth, a habit to encourage others and his wisdom came easily through the cyberspace.
