ForeverMissed
What do you want in life? A life in which you always win no matter what the challenge is, or a life in which you are respected by everybody around you? A student life in which you are always topper? A professional life in which your opinion matters to your colleagues, your boss thinks you are the best, your mentees are grateful to have you? If you want to ask for some more, what about a family life with a beautiful, loving wife with whom you have the best compatibility, a son whose talent is always talked about, caring parents, an extended family who stands with you in your tough time?

If you are thinking you have to be very special to have it all, yes we totally agree.

Sandeep had it all. He was always special and always liked by people around him. But, sadly God also like the one who is liked by everybody. On 2nd May, just at the age of 40 he left all of us for his further journey. He will be forever remembered for his talent, work, support and everything.

I am very happy to have known and worked with Sandeep the past few years at NXP. He had a great attitude and was a very smart and skilled engineer. Sandeep will be sincerely missed here at NXP. My condolences to his family and friends during the difficult time ahead.

Sandeep was one of the most intelligent, hard-working, and kind-hearted person. It's a privilege to have worked with him. His technical expertise was unmatched. There was nothing, he did not have a solution to. He basically knew everything.
He was a source of inspiration for us.
It is so painful to believe that Sandeep is not among us. With his tragic demise, we lost an extraordinary human being. 
My heart goes out to his family. May GOD give them the strength to bear this irreparable loss.
He will always remain in our hearts and prayers.

We will always miss you Sandeep!

I worked with Sandeep (remotely) over the past 5 years ... I requested many new features from his team ... not everyone always understood the things I was asking (sometimes not even myself!) ... but Sandeep not only understood, but invariably delivered a working solution in very timely fashion ... He was very sharp and always got the job done ... he will be missed ... I am still in shock ... my sincere condolences and prayers to the family.

We come across many people in our life but there are very few we look up to and Sandeep was one of them. I met him on my first day in FSL and that was the beginning of our longstanding professional relationship. His special technical abilities were readily apparent. He had a gift of innovative thinking. His devotion to work was motivation and inspiration for everyone around him. Initially I thought that he is super serious person and then in our first team outing, when I saw him laughing and cracking jokes, I still remember the exact phrase which came to my mind, “Sandeep mazak b krte h :)”. Will never forget his team score calculation while playing cricket, it used to increase exponentially. A cheerful soul who was always to support you, professionally as well as personally. I am fortunate that I worked with you.

Its so heartbreaking that you are no more with us.

You will always be my mentor…

If you were ever stuck on any technical issues or were blocked, Sandeep was the guy you need to check with. His judgement on technical issues and ability to approach problems was outstanding. Extremely hardworking individual who never shied away from taking responsibilities. Huge cricket fan, always wanted to win.
He will always be remembered.

My Journey with Sandeep started around 10 years back when I Joined Freescale. In my Initial days at FSL, I found him a very serious guy with less words. His technical expertise and problem solving skills were exceptional. He was the "Go-to guy" or the "problem solver guy" for the entire team.

We started taking our lunch and post lunch walk together. Then I realized that he is actually a fun loving guy. Not only his technical expertise, you bring any topic on the table weather current affairs, politics, world policies - his opinions were always ready. And yes, you need to be at your best ever to compete with him on any of these discussions.

We both were staying at nearby localities, so we used to come together to office via car-pool. There also, I remember many moments when we discussed on many topics, issues open heartedly. Most of the time his opinions were backed by the strong logic which you cannot deny. During our team outing events, he was the most enthusiastic and fun loving person. His passion for cricket is known to everyone.

Over a period of time, he became an extended family for me. I still can't believe he is no more between us. I will always remember him as a simple and pure hearted person whose technical expertise and problem solving skills were amazing.

Sandeep, you will always be in our heart and will be missed forever. Bye.

I will always remember Sandeep as a very hardworking, sincere and a simple person. He always tried to help others and had no arrogance.

Last time I met him was 2 years back, when I went to NXP to meet some old friends...he gave me such a nice welcome.

I pray that your family is able to find the strength ...

his Life
My journey with Sandeep started back in 2005 when he joined the modeling team in Noida as a founding member. Over the years the relationship evolved from where it started as supervisor-subordinate one to that of a partner role and from thereon to being part of an extended family.

Sandeep had a particularly sharp intellect, and he could see through and propose path forward even in convoluted situations. Straight thinker who never hesitated to express his viewpoint or openly share a counter argument. Super quick in his thinking, Sandeep always had a logical rationale to whatever he uttered. That said, Sandeep was a simple person at heart, said what he thought, never minced words. Even so, he was a person of few words – he truly believed in and practiced a philosophy of “speak less work more”. He would talk less, but his work spoke volumes. There was never a task that he refused, never a phone call he did not take even at odd hours - he was practically available 24x7. A super talented, hardworking, dedicated and a role model for all his colleagues.

How I hoped and prayed for a miracle to restore Sandeep back in our midst.....It is an unfortunate and untimely loss for all of us who worked with him. That said, I have full conviction that where ever Sandeep goes, he will earn respected and success in all endeavors.

Thanks my Dear Friend for all you did. You will always be remembered with gratitude for all your contributions, the mentorship, and will continue to be an inspiration for the team to excel at work.

A Hard Working Guy wtih Pure Simple Heart

Shared by Manish Baphna on June 15, 2021
Sandeep was one of the most sincere and hard working person I have worked with. He was  a very strong player for his team. He had a great grip on his technical affairs which explains why his arguments were heavily backed by logic.

While I had many work moments with him, my fondest memory with him was his performance in a fun event. I was directing a team skit where he was to play a funny and cool Bappi Da. One of the reason I chose him for the role was to 'experiment' if this serious techie person can portray this totally non serious role. And he cracked it, he nailed it. I still remember his stage moves while wearing big gold chain on song Jimmi Jimmi , audience shouting and clapping. Every time I have watched that scene, it brought wide smile on my face.

I can't believe such happy talented person is no more.

Sandeep, you will always be in our memories.
