|Krishnaprasad Baliga was a member of Adyar Gopal Parivar
being the son-in-law of Shashidhar Kini. Shashidhar is the
younger son of Moodabidri Venkatray Kini . Roopa is the elder
daughter of Shashidhar and has one child: Karthikeya.
Krishnaprasad was undergoing treatment for a serious disease
in the KMC Hospital, Mangalore and had spent over Rs. 5 Lakhs
exhausting all his savings. He was in debt and could not afford
the expensive medical treatment required for his condition, and
yet all available treatment was provided to him by his wife and
other close relatives. He was working in a factory in Moodbidri
and had scant resources if any.
His wife Roopa is a teacher in a school in Moodbidri.
Karthikeya has been under the care of his aunt since
Krishnaprasad had been bedridden for over six
months. Death of the loving father has made
Karthikeya an orphan in many ways. Now Roopa
alone will have to watch and bring up this young boy
of 5 years with love and affection as a single parent.
I am highly saddened to report that Krishnaprasad breathed his
last on the 3rd February 2011 at KMC Hospital, Mangalore.
Adyar Gopal Parivar expresses its deep sorrow at this event and
conveys its condolences to Roopa and Karthikeya, to help bear
the loss of the head of the family.
KARTHIKEYA AND ROOPA
