In Memoriam

Martin Sylvester Gillespie
Born: November 12th, 1947
Expired: July 12th, 2015
Shahpura, Jaipur, Rajasthan.

He Died With His Boots On!

Martin was born and brought up in Gangapur City, Rajasthan. He also lived in Kota, Ratlam, Jaipur, and Shahpura.
Martin had a wide network of friends and acquaintances. In his friendship he was sincere — and so to in his "non"–friendship. If he liked you, he liked you to the ends of the earth; if he didn't, he didn't like you even a micrometre! There was very little grey space when it came to friendship, and he left you in little doubt about where you stood.
In his later years he worked in schools – Springfield, Parasrampuria (PGIS), and St. Joseph's – where he was immensely liked by his colleagues and even more so by all the pupils who came to know him.
Martin liked loved cooking! And we all loved his cooking! Martin's pepper fry was in heavy demand as was his mince and taters. His fish curry could easily make a grown man cry it was so darn good!
Martin loved music and played a mean guitar. Oft were the times he would regale me with tunes on his 6-string. He adored the Shadows and just couldn't get enough of them.

So, Marty Boy, guess it's time to say "Adios, amigo!" and "See you soon!"
