The CTO of one of the start-ups that I worked for in Bangalore in 2010, passed away from cardiac arrest a few days ago. An extremely friendly chap, he was my reporting Manager at TOBOC.com. Always helpful, a happy-go-luck fellow, Vijay Marada, contributed a lot to the start-up, often staying up late – and mostly working over the weekends.

Working hard is fine. But getting obsessed with it – is bad. One needs to go out – party hard, have fun and let his/her hair down once in a while.

Anyways, Vijay passed away in his native town Hyderabad on 6 Dec 2011.

May his soul rest in peace.
