What a very very sad day. I lost a dear friend, Raj Mathur.
People who knew and have met Raj will always remember him as a lively and humourous person – brutally honest and a man of principles.
Raj was a founder member of the Indian Linux Users Group and a very active member of the Free and Open Source community. Well respected and extremely knowledgable, he was often sought after for advice which he readily dispersed.
Raj loved to have fun and encouraged everyone around him to do the same. He loved his food, his movies, his music and being with friends and family.
A brilliant hacker and much respected for his pioneering work, he will be missed by one and all.
Raj’s IM status always stated “Permanently out to lunch”, this is one time he will not return 🙁
Rest in peace, Raj “Oldmonk” Mathur.
