  1. This news made me go completely numb. I don’t know how and what to react.sandeep was so simple at heart that his simplicity turned out to be his strongest point iguess, in winning the season. I am so so so sad knowing this. I remember his album songs after he won the title. I really wish some miracle happens and we get him back, but I know my prayers won’t make a difference. In that case I can just ask god to let him rest in peace. I am giving my wholehearted condolences to aaacharya family. Rest in peace sandeep :
