Rishi's Deep Connection With Music

Shared by Kavita Parbhakar on May 23, 2021

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” – Plato

Rishi once said that all of life's little moments are much better with a soundtrack. Listening to music was Rishi's escape, unlike others who just listened to the music itself, he connected with the lyrics. We used to share our favorite song lyrics and discuss how some of the words just resonated differently, almost like they were mirroring our innermost thoughts and proving to us that we were not alone in this world. We bonded and connected over music and I will forever miss that.

Rishi took his love for music to another level when he began composing his own pieces. It's then that we truly realized what an amazing gift Rishi had. A genius in his own right, one of his beautiful creations would be picked up for a watch commercial. Rishi's pride in this achievement was absolutely breathtaking to witness as he had always been such a humble soul, but this he could shout from the rooftops.

Listening to Rishi's music takes us on a surreal journey like no other and this will keep us connected to him forever.

We invite you to listen to some of his powerful music at the links below and take a journey with us through our amazing Rishi's mind and soul:

Rishi's Love For Children

Shared by Laura Kindron on May 22, 2021
Anyone at Clarence Lobo Elementary School would tell you that Rishi had a huge heart for kids.  Previously a music aide, Rishi joined our school family in September, 2020.  He worked with 3rd and 4th graders as an extended learning teacher.  He developed a strong bond with his students, supporting them with challenges, sharing his love of basketball, and always advocating for their needs.  Through his work with our students, he made the decision to pursue a path to become a credentialed teacher.  He was so excited to start this journey.  Our sweet little school community has been blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know and love Rishi.  The impact he made on our staff, students, and families will never be forgotten.
