Dear all,

I am extremely sorry to inform you that my younger cousin brother passed away last Friday from severe medical complications. He was just 38 and had been hospitalised for several weeks in critical stage.

Being engrossed in the family issue I was not able to reply the thread for which I am extremely sorry.

Regarding the issue as discussed in the thread I had requested for sponsorship with all needful information from external funding agency CIS, and CIS agreed to it.  Wikimedia India did not spend any fund from its account. 

However this discussion will be helpful for Wikimedia India while disseminating WMIN’s funds in future.  

In case someone wants any other information  in this regard I would request community members to personally email me.

Just a technical clarification - Asaf copied Rahul in his first emai so he must have received the email. I have copied Rahul again. In worst case scenario (if he is not there in the mailing list), others from the chapter board would have informed him. It’s very hard to believe that the discussion has gone so far without Rahul not being aware Also, it’s important for movement partner reps to be on mailing lists of their own country. 

My bad. Haven't noticed Rahul is also marked in the mails.

Sorry, I don’t find the argument — that Rahul hasn’t replied back because he isn’t there in the mailing list — a strong one.

Completely agree that he should reply.
