Atul Chitnis passed away on June 3, at the age of 51, after losing a 10-month-long battle with advanced intestinal cancer. A passionate technologist and amateur cook, the lively Chitnis spent much of his life in making open source software accessible to everyone. He was diagnosed with the disease in August 2012 and was under chemotherapy.

He was also a columnist and consulting editor for PCQuest magazine, Co-Founder of RadioVeRVe and Founder at FOSS.IN

Remembered him his insightful writings and blog posts, it is difficult to single out a specific achievement from the prolific man. He touched the lives of people whom he met, whom he was yet to meet and  whom he will now never meet.

Here are some tweets expressing grief of his death and biding him final goodbye.
