A Tragic Farewell: Subhashree Sahoo
Team MM | Dec 14, 2019
With a heavy heart, we bid the last farewell to one of the most beloved students of our institution, Subhashree Sahoo. The unfortunate news of her demise has been a matter of shock and grief for the institution. A prodigy from the Department of Electrical Engineering, Subhashree was pursuing Dual Degree and was currently in her pre-final year.
A brilliant artist and even more charming personality, Subhashree was loved by all and admired by many. She has been the recipient of the Academic Excellence Award in the past for her meritorious academic performance. A resident of Sambalpur, Subhashree was admitted to Burla Government Hospital, Burla on 11 December 2019 where she was diagnosed with sickle-cell anaemia. Unfortunately, she suffered from a cardiac arrest at late night and was shifted to ICU where she breathed her last on 12 December 2019 at 3:30 AM.
Subhashree had served as the Vice-President of Akriti, the Arts and Craft club of NIT Rourkela. Under her guidance and leadership, she has been able to successfully organize various events including Radiance during Innovision. She was also a member of Cyborg, the robotics club of NIT Rourkela. With a kind heart and extraordinary charm, she was a fun-loving and jolly person. Her friends and juniors remember her as a true companion who would always be ready to help others and guide them through their time of despair.
Ashish Patel, the current President of Akriti and one of her beloved juniors say:
Subhashree di, she was one of the best people in the club. During her tenure as vice president, the club evolved to a great extent. She was beautiful in every respect. A great human being who was never shy of motivating us in difficult times. Her presence made us feel at home. Personally, for me, she reminded me of my sister and losing her is very difficult to accept. She taught me how to carry people along with you as a leader. May God give strength to her family and friends. May her soul rest in peace
Subhashree is survived by both her parents and had a younger brother. Her funeral was held at her native village at Talcher on 12 December 2019.
Team Monday Morning deeply mourns her unexpected departure and hopes for strength to her friends and family to bear the unfortunate loss. May her soul rest in eternal peace!
