Dear Tanveer, it still is hard for me to believe that you are not with us. My friend I am feeling your absence each day for it has been a year that you have left me shattered without even letting me know why? Those days are hard for me to forget, when you would go on and on advising me and making me understand what this life was all about. Why never you for a once dropped hint that I would ask for those (advices) again but you won’t be with me anymore. We would vouch and bank on each other on any given day! Losing you at such a young and daring age has taken the strength out of me.
I remember those golden words while you were still at your death bed at SMHS ‘Jahangir always remain committed to the facts… Ensure continuity of GNS, ensure continuity of Kashmir Glory.’
Tanveer in your demise I lost my mentor, guide, brother and a confidante.
The hardwork and persistence you showed to take GNS to its heights with bare minimum resources is still a dream for anyone. In your hardwork I understood that great men work on frugal resources but what they produce has its worth gold!
People in the fraternity vouch for the authenticity of information in stories carried by GNS. We as a team aim to maintain the sacredness of facts and unbiased news and each day remind ourselves to live up to your last wish. The team is on the move and by the grace of Almighty will keep on moving for times to come, be assured!
Knowing that you have left us all heartbroken but nevertheless what you have left behind motivates us each day to go for perfection to relive the legacy. It was a privilege to have you in my life. Rest in peace dear friend!
