More than one hundred bikers in Dubai, UAE went on a memorial ride to Kalba, UAE to pay respect to the departed soul of their fellow biker Amrit Vikram.

Ride to the Accident Site

Early morning on October 22, 2010 more than one hundred bikers in Dubai, UAE went on a memorial ride to Kalba, a village situated in the Southern part of United Arab Emirates, to pay respect to the departed soul of their 32 years old fellow biker Amrit Vikram who left for heavenly abode on October 15, 2010 in a freaky accident with a cyclist.

The bikers were accompanied by their families and friends. Amrit had many non-biker friends also who showed up on the spot of the accident to light candles and join in the prayer. Friends who gathered there were from different religions and prayed in their own way for their dear friend’s soul. A colleague Rohit Pawar, Manager, Audi Approved: plus Audi Centre of Al Nabooda Automobiles LLC, Dubai, UAE and a biker got arm bands made with Amrit’s name written on it and distributed to all present at the memorial site.

Passion for Bikes

Amrit had a great passion for bikes and had been riding for 18 years. His day was never complete if he didn’t ride the bike. Although he used to commute to work in a car, on returning from Office, he would go for a bike ride to conclude his day. Most of his friends believe he lived life doing what he loved the most and died doing the same. Amrit may be no more but his passion lives on amongst his friends who will remember him forever. “Losing a friend like Amrit has been one of the biggest personal and emotional loss I have experienced but it has also been an inspirational friendship which taught me how one can enjoy life every moment and live it the way we like to” said another colleague Vivek Sathish, Sales Consultant from Audi Approved: plus Audi Centre of Al Nabooda Automobiles LLC, Dubai, UAE and a biker.

Loss of a Good Friend

“Losing a friend like Amrit has been one of the biggest personal and emotional loss I have experienced but it has also been an inspirational friendship which taught me how one can enjoy life every moment and live it the way we like to” said another colleague Vivek Sathish, Sales Consultant from Audi Approved: plus Audi Centre of Al Nabooda Automobiles LLC, Dubai, UAE and a biker.

A close friend Jittu Thomas who owns 3C Car Care Centre in Al Quoz, Dubai, UAE asserted “Amrit, the man with a million dollar smile could disarm you in a flash. His zest for life and all things within was a pleasure to witness. He was committed to work, play and friends with unparallel intensity. It was a joy to have known him”.

If there was a way, Amrit’s friends would do anything to have him back but probably God wanted him more. Many were not able to express their emotions through words but their eyes spoke volumes. “If tears could make a stairway and memories turned into a lane, we would walk all the way to Heaven to bring you home again. No farewell words were uttered not did you have time to say good-bye, you were gone before we even knew it, and only God knows why” concluded Rohit Pawar.
