Alyosha – A Blaze Like a Shooting Star is the narrative of a boy ‘Alyosha’ who lived a short life, which he lived to the fullest following his convictions, with utter honesty and showing compassion to his fellow beings. His simplicity and positivity of outlook endeared him to those who came in touch with him whilst his brutal forthrightness quite often brought him into conflict with those in authority. Since his birth, it was apparent that Alyosha was a special and exceptionally gifted child. He excelled in sports and academics with equal ease. He was also very perceptive of the human nature. His friends knew him to be a daring and brave boy, who stood up against odds and injustices in life with dignity. In the wee hours of 30 Sep 2007, he was fatally stabbed at Bangalore whilst defending his friend from molestation. His parents, Cmde Arun Kumar, Ms Deepa and his paternal aunt Ms Prabha have set up a public charitable trust as per Alyosha’s desire, for the disadvantaged sections of the society.
Alyosha – A Blaze Like a Shooting Star is written by his father.
The Trust is truly a befitting tribute to his life and the values he lived and died for.
