And especially at events and shows you were sure to find him. He stood out from all of the others doing the same job. Somehow it was reassuring to know that if Das was present things were probably under control. He was one of those first industry personalities I discovered. Unique to our industry. Unique to Malayalam. He never really had a title. But everyone knew him and of him. I guess he never needed one. He was just him. Das. He will be missed. More than he would know. Prayers and condolences to his family.”, posted Dulquer. Galatta Media prays for the departed soul to rest in peace.
