In Memoriam

With profound sadness, we share the passing of Amit Bhagat, a beloved member of the PGP 2001 cohort, who courageously battled cancer until his passing earlier this year. In remembrance of his remarkable life, his fellow batchmates have penned a heartfelt tribute to honor his memory.

Amit Bhagat from the PGP 2001 passed away earlier this year in January after bravely battling cancer. His presence, kindness, compassion, humour, and sheer goodness will be sorely missed by his wife Pooja and daughter Anika as well as by all those who knew and loved him.

Bhaggy Boy, as he was so fondly known by some, bossed his time at campus. Loved by all, he was equally comfortable being wild with the wild, and sane with the sane. Born a Cal Maadu..grew up to be a Pseud and evolved into a true Londoner. Famous for his smile, his wry sense of humour, his tiny shorts, and just being nice.

By profession, he was a banker – a Managing Director at Bank of America in London. At home- Bhaggy, Pooja, and Anika were warm hosts to many visiting friends and were the heart of the local London gang.

A joker, philosopher, traveller, foodie, friend, husband, and father, like no other- he walked lightly in this world and left an indelible impression on all those he came in contact with. A cheeky pint and kebabs at Tayyabs will never be the same again for his London friends.

Rest in peace, Bhagat, you have truly left the world a better place for the short time you graced it.
