It was with
shock that I heard the news of the demise of my beloved friend and former
colleague Com. Jayaraj Vellaichamy when I had been to India recently.
Jayaraj, a former AAO of
United India Insurance Company, Madurai, was not only a respected
friend, but was a trade Unionist and more than a philosopher and
well-wisher to me and a good family friend. He became a widower about a
year ago and subsequently, became a victim of Seminoma, a variant of
malignant tumor to which he succumbed after hospitalisation for a
few months. Jayaraj has no children.
We miss Jayaraj and pay our tributes to
