SGAI commemorates colleague’s sad demise (December 2008)

Condolence meeting held for Mukesh Jadhav who was killed during terrorist attacks

When terrorists attack, it is the lives of helpless and innocent people that are tragically lost. Last month, during the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, the screen printing community lost one of its members, Mukesh Jadhav, an employee of Sky Screen (P) Ltd., Mumbai. He was a member of the Home Guards who lay down his life in the line of duty. SGAI held a condolence meeting where members recounted his bravery and presented contributions to his family to help them in their time of crisis.

It was with a deep sense of sorrow and anguish that screen printing community reacted on learning about the unfortunate and untimely demise of one of its members during the tragic terrorist attacks that Mumbai recently witnessed. Mukesh Jadhav, a 23-year old employee of Sky Screen (P) Ltd. working as a dispatch clerk, was also a member of the Home Guards. During the terrorist attacks, he was on duty at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) where he bravely laid down his life.
