Coloring life with Amay 17-Jan-09
Gaurav underwent the 3rd round of chemo (high dose of consolidation) at Hinduja starting Monday, 12th Jan. He is now back at home and thankfully continues to be in a state of remission.
On the financial front, I am extremely pleased to report that till now we have collected over INR 22L (Approx US$ 49,000) in contributions to assist Gaurav. Please do continue to spread the word about assisting Gaurav. Needless to say, at this stage, every cent counts.
In order to further augment his condition financially, Gaurav sold his solitary car last week.
Regarding the sale of his Kandivili house, Brokers have advised Gaurav that the sale should happen in the next few weeks, given the end of an “inauspicious? period for house buyers recently. Needless to say, we continue to be on the look out for possible buyers. Any assistance on the said front would be most appreciated.
Lastly, we have broad based the “Save Gaurav? campaign by involving Media. Last week, Gaurav was interviewed by INDIA TV; the said interview will be aired over the next 1 week. Given the enormity of the funds required, we believe seeking the assistance of media (TV channels, Newsprint, Magazines, etc) would increase our coverage and efforts many folds. Hence, we would appreciate if any one of you can put Gaurav and Anuradha in touch with your personal contacts in Media Houses, either in India or overseas.
Many thanks once again for your continued support.
