May 17th: Never Far Apart
Forever thoughtful of our special needs,
Your love still our guide,
walking beside us every day.
Still loved, still missed and very dear.
As long as there is memory, they'll live on and felt in our hearts.”

April 9th, 2016: Anuj's Birthday - Thinking Of You With Love
but that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday,
and days before that too.
We think of you in silence,
we often speak your name.
I see your beaming smile as I close my eyes
I hear your voice so deep and strong
My heart & mind full of times we shared
Trying to forget that you are not here
Your memory is our keepsake,
with which we will never part.
God has you in His keeping,
we have you in our hearts.
I hope you are looking down on us today
To see how much you are missed and loved
Especially today on your birthday."

New Year 2016: Inspire Us
You are the thousand winds that blow.
You are the diamond glint on the snow;
You are the sunlight on ripened grain;
You are the gentle rain.
When we waken in the morning's hush
You are the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight.
You are the soft stars that shine at night.
For everything beautiful that we see
Brings a memory of you."

June 11, 2014: We Have You In Our Prayers
like your presence is so near,
As we close our eyes to envision
your face when you were here,
We are reminded of the times spent together
as they are forever locked inside my heart.
For as long as we have those memories
We will never be apart.
An angel gained;
Perhaps a distance apart,
Our friendship will always live on,
In a place in our heart.
A loss like this,
Won't heal soon,
But you light the sky,
The sun, the stars, the moon.
Every night before we sleep
We have you in our prayers."

April 9th, 2014: Remembering Anuj's on His Birthday
"We never need a special day
To bring you to our minds,
For days without a thought of you,
Are very hard to find.
Gone to the sky
Way up high.
When you entered
Your touch calmed our souls
When we are in despair
Your presence was felt
You gave advice with earnest truth
You are smiling down
As the years come and go,
But in our hearts you will live forever,
Because we love you so.
Will never be forgotten."

Diwali 2013: Let there be Light
Wednesday, October 30, 2013
Anuj's combined his love for the game of baseball and the city he spent some of his favorite years in by rooting for the Red Sox not just in their good year, but during their low ones as well. Even when he moved out to west coast, he use to often rally his friends and family when Red Sox came to town to play the A's.
We're sure Anuj would have gotten all of us together to watch the Red Sox win the World Series.

1) Anuj Mohan Scholarship for “Best Student” for the year 2012-2013: Kautubh Kapur
2) Anuj Mohan Scholarship for securing highest marks in Grade 10: Ayush Jain

I Have A Dream
For his first attempt on stage Anuj chose MLK's famous "I Have a Dream" speech. Like they did for millions of others, King's words moved him even at that young age - Anuj was in middle school at the time. He felt that conveying MLK's passion and strength of purpose would be a worthy challenge. Anuj understood Martin Luther King Jr.'s deep connection to India based on the latter's lifelong public admiration of Mahatma Gandhi. Therefore he wanted to deliver the speech in a manner that was a true tribute to this great man. He not only succeeded in doing that but in the process won first prize in the contest. His entire family was so proud.
We remain proud to this day because Anuj chose not only to deliver a speech by King, but decided to live his life in a manner inspired by him as well. And those who were lucky enough to cross paths with Anuj, even for a brief time, know that he unequivocally succeeded in achieving that goal.

We watch it dance,
When we feel low,
We think of you,
We think of light,
You’ll always be here,
Day or night,
Out of sight, but in our Hearts.
That you are not gone,
and now watch upon us All..."

Old Friends: "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"
He is in the middle of the bottom row, wearing the blue t-shirt.
This photographed was posted on Facebook by one of Anuj's team mates and below are a couple of comments by his close friends from high school at St. Francis' College, Lucknow, India.
Vikas sums up our beloved Anuj in one powerful word, "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious".
"The boy you see in the center with blue t-shirt, Anuj Mohan. He was full of incredible qualities, created bond of love and friendship with everyone he met. One of the brilliant student this school ever had. He was Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
I miss you buddy."
- Vikas Soni
"Since we are recalling our legendary sportsmen... outstanding as a football goalie and in basketball with his infectious smile and laughter- sadly the late Anuj Mohan"

April 9th, 2013: Remembering Anuj on his Birthday
For love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade,
Because one loved is gone.
They last till the longest day.
They never wear out or get lost.
Those we love can never be more than a thought apart.
We think of you in silence.
Your charming ways and smiling face, are a pleasure to recall.
As long as there is a memory
You live on in our hearts"

'It is the Season of Remembrance
Albert Einstein once
said “The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is
capable of receiving.”
The selfless man that Anuj was, inspired so many of us by
his kindness, giving and joyous personality. Keep him in your hearts and minds
during this season of giving, and as you think of those less fortunate than us.

Our Memories Span Miles
"Distance never separates two hearts that really care, for our memories span the miles and in seconds we are there. But whenever I start feeling sad cause I miss you I remind myself how lucky I am to have someone so special to miss." - Anonymous

April 9th, 2012: Remembering Anuj on his Birthday
Our thoughts are ever with you
Those who loved you dearly
Are thinking of you today.
Everyday in some small way
Memories of you come our way.
Though absent, you are always near
Still missed, loved and always dear.
I lit a candle tonight, in honor of you
Remembering your life, and all the times we’d been through.
Such a small little light the candle made
Until I realized how much in darkness it lit the way.
Thank you for loving and sharing,
For giving and for caring.
Your presence we miss,
Your memory we treasure,
Loving you always,
Forgetting you never.
In the hearts of those who loved you
You will always be there.

Back to School: 1997
Back in 1997, when Anuj returned to MIT and his home away from home at the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity house, he was bestowed with responsibility of welcoming the incoming freshman class and make them feel at home. Who better for the job than Anuj?!

Kindness is tenderness.
Kindness is love, but perhaps greater than love...
Kindness is good will.
Kindness says, "I want you to be happy".
Kindness was a trait inherent in Anuj's everyday life.

April 9th, 2011: Remembering Anuj on his Birthday
There's a very special garden
Where the trees of memory grow
Nurtured by the kindness
And concern that good friends show.
The roots are cherished memories
Of good times in the past
The branches tender promises
That souls endure and last.
It's a place of peace and beauty
Where bright new hopes can start
It's memory's lovely garden
That soothes the hurting heart.
