Condolences & Memories (12 entries)

  • My condolences to the wife, family and friends of Darius. I remember him well from the high school debates as an opposing coach. He was a brilliant and charming young man. I am saddened by such a loss and can’t imagine how hard this must be for all of you. Take care.

  • I met Darius a few years back at the Hindu Temple on Ste. Anne’s. We both were drawn to each other due to our curiosity and interest in both Hinduism and spiritually. I was so impressed that a person of his age could be so aware and engaged in his quest. I realized through our conversations that as a young girl I had known his mother as our parents were both immigrants from Trinidad. I was so happy to have connected with Darius. Over the years, as we would see each other, Darius proved my initial impression that he was in fact a very old soul in a young body. I knew he was bound for great things and that he would in fact make a difference. To learn that Darius is no longer in this physical world with us is beyond shocking. It’s hard to believe that his time here has come to an end. I can only imagine the pain and shock that this reality has brought to his family. Please accept my heartfelt condolence along with my families. I am very thankful for the interactions I had with Darius through the years but wish I had even more opportunities as he’s was indeed a very special soul. - Posted by: Anita Maharaj (Friend) on: Aug 13, 2021

  • I am devastated to learn of Darius Brahma’s sudden death. I knew him when he volunteered to help for Diwali Mela of the Hindu Society. He made a wonderful MC and he willingly & cheerfully helped other MCs too. His cheerful demeanour & very helpful attitude set a standard for others to follow. We all will miss him acutely when we start planning for Diwali Mela. My heartfelt condolences to his family. - Ganga Dakshinamurti - Posted by: Ganga Dakshinamurti (Hindu Society colleague ) on: Aug 13, 2021
