My wife and I and my fellow zenfans are deeply saddened by Sir Kailash’s passing. Li made a great contribution to the country, but above all he was an exemplary and loving father who made great sacrifices for his family and was a great gentleman in every way. Nou prier pou ki li repose en paix. Om Shanti”
