I met Asheem while shooting the last schedule of ‘Leaving Home’, a feature length film on the band Indian Ocean, directed by Jaideep Varma. I immediately became a fan of the band and of course, of Asheem. Its hard not to. Asheem was always warm and enthusiastic, and filled everyone around him with a joyful and optimistic energy. Every time he sang or played his music, you could see him pour his soul into it. He was only 52 when he left.
