"One Life in This Lifetime: Chandu Bhai—How Would You Like to Be Remembered?"

Last week, Boston lost one of its kind. He wore so many hats that we forgot who he truly was. He turned into something you wanted him to be. He was a businessman, poet, producer, director, artist, writer, organizer, playwright, filmmaker, and above all, an amazing human being—Chandu Shah.

The memorial service was one of a kind, even with the busy festival weekend; it was busy. A lot of people spoke about his involvement in various groups, events, and organizations, and his human side. I saw people of all ages. Not only his circle of friends who were in their 60s and 70s, but also a lot of younger crowds were there to pay their tribute to a man who was there for everyone.

His life was worth celebrating, and that brings up a very interesting topic. How would you like to be remembered? Do you think about your life beyond? Have you made a list of things to do before you go? Do you have a bucket list?
