Very saddened to note that OM Rama Prabhu is no more. I have heard about him many times that he is such a nice & wonderful person where ever Ham activity goes on, he supports liberally in all aspects. He is an inspiration to every Ham. His sudden demise is really a great loss to the Ham community of our nation in general and particularly to the Hams of Bangalore. He will be remembered by every Ham through his good work. Our deepest condolences go to his bereaved family members
