I witnessed the frantic efforts by the Indian Embassey and the wider Indian Tech Community in Brussels first hand in the initial few hours of the bomb blasts to locate Raghvendran. This official confirmation fills me with sadness and anger.
Raghvendran represented everything that we are proud of as Global Indians. Youth, aspiration, talent, and an international outlook making everywhere we go our home. A true and very positive example of our increasingly global environment.
He had so much positive to give – all now taken away by these barbarians who themselves have nothing but a warped ideology to peddle.
On Wednesday PM Modi will pay tribute in Brussels to Raghvendran and to all those others who have perished at the hands of these barbaric hoards.
