Lively, loving, selfless and ever-helpful – that was Casi


Three months have gone by since we lost our dear Casi. Casi was a true, dedicated and loving husband to my sister Subo. She was his life for him. The short spell he spent with her was truly memorable.

He was a unique, selfless person who never lived for himself. His priority was helping others. Helping people and helping to resolve the problems of friends and kith and kin took precedence over his own problems. He knew he had a terminal disease, and he faced it with courage. When he was very sick, my nephew called him from overseas. Full of hope, Casi said: “I know what is ahead of me, but I am giving it a good fight.”

Casi was a God-fearing, humble person with a heart of gold. He always had a smile. There was never a dull moment with him.

As a Brahmin married to a Roman Catholic, he balanced his religious life beautifully; he never missed a Sunday service nor a Friday visit to the temple. He was very popular at his workplace, where he was known for his hard work and dedication. His boss Mithra Vallipuram, under whom Casi worked for more than 20 years, said: “Casi was my employee only in the office; outside the workplace he was a dear brother to me.”

Casi’s passing away has been a great loss for his sister Saro, the family’s only survivor. She looked up to her brother for advice and moral support. She still cannot believe that he is gone.

Casi was the livewire in the Rajakariar family, and his demise is an irreparable loss to us. Casi is no more, but his good deeds will never be erased from our memories.

God takes early those He loves most, and Casi is one of those. We are confident that for all the good deeds he did he will be safe in the arms of Jesus. May his soul rest in peace.
