To celebrate a man’s life is the greatest tribute one can ever give! As we recollect his departure two years ago, a myriad of beautiful memories race through our minds and bring sadness to our hearts at the thought of having lost him! He was a thorough gentleman in every way! He was always such a dynamic person so full of life and energy that was inexhaustible.

Mr. Nagendra was an employer and a boss who was always kind and considerate towards his employees and subordinates alike! One could always approach him with a problem without trepidation for he was so patient and tolerant with anyone who made a mistake! Never would he reprimand anyone with harsh words of anger but would always give appropriate advice or correction in an amicable way, and was known to be approachable especially to the minor staff with any problems or issues! 


Mr. Nagendra was a Director of Carson Cumberbatch & Co. Ltd., and served as the Airline Director for KLM Royal Dutch Airlines for the longest period until they ceased operating into Sri Lanka! Being a very sociable person, he maintained an excellent rapport with all the General Managers who were posted in Colombo.


Mr. Nagendra always had a congenial attitude and a flexible approach to any problem that was always amicably solved as he would always strive for peace and good relations not only at the management level but at the staff level as well! Everyone had a deep respect and admiration for him that was genuinely sincere! He definitely had a ‘Big Heart’, and was always ready to help. He would not say ‘No’ to anyone, however difficult the 
situation or circumstance!


The worst memory is that of the Central Bank bomb blast in which he was severely injured but miraculously escaped! Later in that same year, Mr. Nagendra left Carsons to launch his own travel agency, ‘Travel Serve’ which is still in business! Mr. Nagendra is one “jewel” of a human being that we had the honour and privilege to have in our lives! His departure was so sudden that it was a devastating shock to all who knew him, but especially to his dear wife and life’s partner, Mrs. Sarla Nagendra, son, Prashan and spouse, Shameli, as well as his son-in-law, Jekhan, and grandsons. We recall how deeply heartbroken he was when they lost their beautiful, precious daughter, Kshirabdi a few years before his passing! Mr. Nagendra was a devoted and loving husband, father and grandfather, and was a faithful exceptionally proud family man in every way! He is surely irreplaceable and sorely missed even to this day by all who had the privilege and honour of knowing this wonderful exceptional human being! 
May his beautiful gentle soul rest in peace!
