Remembering Rohit Natu : Our volunteers do it in a different way…

We are very proud of 70 of our members from MIDC who voluntarily collected an amount of Rs. 41,500/- in the memory of Rohit Natu, an excellent sportsman who passed away on the sports ground during practice.

Rohit had a pet name, "The Technician" because of his aptitude and skills. He was a mechanical engineer by training but loved life fully and used to take pleasure in everything he did.

He was addicted to music and badminton. He considered himself a Red Devil for life.He worshipped Roger Federer.

He completed his Mechanical Engineering from VIT Pune and was one of brightest students of his class in both academics and extra curricular activities. He was also an active member of the Baja Team (annual event) at college. He joined FM as GTE in 2012.

Soon he became a part of our football team we bet on his being as our match winner. But sadly his demise during practice was a great shock for his team.

All his friends and colleagues in Forbes Marshall decided to give the collected amount for a cause. So when an appeal was floated through an institution called Maher for supporting the Sports Camp, his friends thought it was a great opportunity to cherish Rohit''s memory by encouraging young children who like sports. A trophy was specially made on which Rohit''s name was inscribed and the trophy and the cash donation was handed over, on the award ceremony day, to sister Lucy Kurien who has founded Maher for needy children and women. From the amount collected, a students who excelled in Badminton was given an  award and some sports equipment was bought for the children. It was a very touching moment when the awardees and staff members of Maher announced that they would keep Rohit''s memory alive by doing their very best by developing excellent sports persons. His colleagues remembered Rohit''s favorite football club Liverpool''s quote, "You''ll never walk alone”! We really appreciate the thoughtfulness of these 70 members and their noble initiative.
