Dear community,

On January 29, 2013 our fellow WCA member Raj Gala from India passed away due to Dengue fever. He was 18 years old.

Raj competed in 3 WCA competitions and was ranked #5 in India for Megaminx (single and average).

On the WCA Forum WCA delegate Gaurav Taneja and Raj's friends Yogesh and Bhargav write about Raj as a helpful and kind member of the Indian community.

Our thoughts and sympathy go out to Raj's family and friends.
