My dad Kishore V Sonpal, was just short of 82, when he breathed his last on June 12, 2020, 01:24am. He built the habit of maintaining a diary right from his late twenties, when he took up his first job with Indian Railways, way back in 1964. His writings have stood the test of time.

Transcript to the message:

Words are words, after all. You must live in presence of one who practices what he preaches, and then you can learn by constant observation.
