How many people can say they love life? How many jump out of bed, inspired and enthused, on a mission that has captured their imagination? How many people are so driven that no amount of complexity or challenge could deflate them? Janakinath Das, affectionately known as ‘JD,’ was a vibrant soul who exhibited such hunger for life. Paradoxically, when the notice of death landed at his door he welcomed it with the same enthusiasm. For him, it was another adventure. No frustration, bitterness or regret.

Have you ever met someone who loves life and simultaneously embraces death? By a stroke of great fortune we encountered such a soul, and we’ll humbly attempt to share that remarkable story with you.
