    It was indeed a shocking news to hear about Arrow’s demise. I had the fortune of working closely with such an illustrious advertising professional, who was extremely good strategist, speaker and communication expert. A very fun loving person ever ready to go any jungle and live there. He was close to nature and his fondness for tigers and lions are immense. i had the fortune of traveling to many places for fun. There is too much to talk about Arrow one of the best advertising man i have come across in my three decades of advertising career. May his soul rest in peace…….. Subu
