 BOTHELL, WA
A mile wide smile. That is what I remember when I think of Kailash. My friend and a colleague. A true example of the best mankind has to offer. A kind hearted man, who loved life; a person who saw the best in everyone, the humor in every situation and an opportunity in every setback.
Today, with the heaviest of heart, I am writing this on behalf of everyone who have had the opportunity to know Kailash Bolar. Kailash met with an accident involving a drunk driver crashing into his cab which he could not survive. Knowing his love for cars and that he never touched alcohol, it makes me angry. But right now it's not the time to be angry but think about the family he left behind. He is survived by his 6 year old daughter Krisha and his wife Asha.
I cannot express in words the pain and trauma they are going through right now. As with most families who come to this land of opportunities, Kailash had no immediate family here. And it is up to all of us to ensure that Krisha's future is secured. And that means helping Asha get the financial support that is needed to carry on with their life in these hard times.
We cannot bring him back, but we can all stay true to his friendship by securing Krisha and Asha a comfortable setting to cherish their memories without worrying about the financial consequences for the immediate future.
We need the funds soon while friends and colleagues are working to ensure Asha and Krisha can atleast be in the country and pursue the future Kailash would have wanted for them.
For everyone who did not know Kailash, I would urge you to donate as if you were doing this for my daughter. We need to demonstrate that good deeds do bring you back good karma. We need to prove we are humans, That we care for the fellow earthling. I can guarantee you that Kailash would have walked the extra mile for you if you were a stranger to him. He would have told you a joke or two and reinforced your faith in humanity.
RIP Kailash, I will see on the other side. And then we will rock that music system you built. You know I will play Pink Floyd, right? Love you man.

The overwhelming kindness and support this campaign has received is something we can all rejoice in as a testament to human spirit. I do not have enough words to express my gratitude, so I will simply say thank you from the bottom of my heart.
There is also a private service going to be held today in RI for family and friends.
I wanted to add that I failed to realize the momentum of this campaign and now we are past the goal I had set. Please continue to share and donate. Every bit counts. Thank you.

I wanted to take a moment and express my gratitude to everyone who contributed towards such a noble cause. I have been getting messages from people all around. I will do my best to return calls and talk about Kailash from my experiences with him. All the good karma Kailash had earned during his time continues to bring love and security to his family through all you folks out there. It restores my faith in humanity and pushes me to make a better person. I will continue to work on this and keep his family posted. Thank you.

Humbled by the overwhelming support coming from all corners. Even from folks who have never met him. Feels good to see humanity at play. Just goes on to show what an amazing individual Kailash was. Thank you all.

I worked closely with Kailash. He was always smiling and helpful. He and his wife had just finished building their home and was excited about their family's future here. My heart breaks for his family and our loss. He was a great man and will be dearly missed

I knew Kailash from India Deloitte office. He was very jovial person and used to pull each others legs :) Talked to him on phone in USA once twice and met him in Delaware with our other friend Nitin, Sanket and Rohan. It is hard to believe he is no more. May his soul Rest in peace. Only time will heal our hearts. Pray for his family.... Please accept our condolence

Kailash was a kind, soft spoken man with intelligence. It was a pleasure working with him. His calm demeanor was contagious. God rest his soul and keep his memory alive.
