straight from the heart, Saket Kapur, General Secretary, PCAIT recalled Ashish

with fondness. Reminiscing about Ashish, Kapur said, “Ashish was a go-getter.

The amount that he achieved in a short time was amazing. He took over a well

established business from his dad and then went on to take it to bigger things.

He was snatched away from us very early but we all recall the qualities that

made him special. And those are the very same qualities that we see in our

winner Gurpreet.”
