Subject: [Surabhi] Send Mahesh Home

Our dear friend Mahesh Mahadevan has left us as of Saturday, April 10th, hours before his 23rd birthday. Mahesh was a second year Ph.D. student in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of California, Irvine and an alumnus of the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. Mahesh was a truly wonderful person with a bottomless heart, always willing to help everyone out without hesitation. His passion for life and people has inspired several of us to explore the world. He was genius in his own right; his thirst for knowledge and willingness to share it with us has made us better individuals. We miss him terribly.
Now Mahesh has to find his way home to Cochin, Kerala in India. It is estimated that the entire process (mortuary, embalming, airfare, and funeral services) will cost several thousand dollars, which, as we all are well aware of, is forbiddingly expensive. It is time for us to come together and show our support. Please help Mahesh on his journey home and beyond. We, Surabhi--the Indian Students Association at UC, Irvine--request you to donate any amount possible by clicking on this link below. All funds will be transferred to Mahesh's parents in India. In the event of surplus funds, we will institute a trust and establish scholarships in his memory for under-priveleged yet brilliant young minds. In our efforts to be transparent, we will update this webpage everyday with donors, their contributions, and expenses. If you would rather be anonymous, please e-mail nithyas [at] gmail [dot] com.
Please go to this website to donate: http://www.findmahesh.com/

If you have any questions, please contact the President of Surabhi, Nithya Sambasivan at nithyas [at] gmail [dot] com or 978-996-0231 or the Vice-President, Bharath Rajaram at bharath [dot] rajaram [at] gmail [dot] com or 281-536-3370.

Please forward to Mahesh's friends and those who may help us in these times of need.
