Rajeev Motwani – Forever Etched in our Minds and Hearts

Rajeev at TiEcon '05 - from a personal stash

Rajeev Motwani (in May '05) from my personal stash

Very sad and extremely tragic. There is no other way to describe this.

This post is for those several of us grieving in our own quiet way; those who knew Rajeev as a fellow alum, a colleague, a mentor, an investor and most importantly as a friend. A friend you could trust with technology, business, personnel or personal challenges, anytime, anywhere.

Rest in Peace my friend. We all carry a piece of you in our hearts and minds – especially your enigmatic smile.

    Indeed, very tragic. It is always sad to lose someone so generous and kind. My sympathies. May he rest in peace and inspire us all.

    Sad to see a intelligent, enthusiastic and even-keeled startup supporter like Rajeev get taken away from us at such an early age and at a time when he was really having an influence in the IIT entrepreneur community! My condolences to Asha, his kids and his family. RIP!

    It was quite shocking to read the news in Times of India in Bangalore. I had met Rajeev on several occassions both one on one and in group settings in the Bay Area. He was always helpful and reachable. It is quite sad to see him go at such an early age. My heartfelt condolences to his entire family. RIP Rajeev!

    Sad, still very sad. But there is at least some sense of closure. San Jose Mercury: Rajeev Motwani’s death ruled accidental drowning
