In Loving Memory of Aalok Awalikar
Aalok joined HCT Sun as CBO when it was still drifting in the uncharted waters of India's solar energy world, ultimately giving it its heading and helping it sail smoothly. HCT Sun's growth over the past two years was in no small part due to Aalok's vision and constant guidance.
Aalok helped the company develop a variety of business models, pushing HCT Sun from milestone to milestone. His vision and strategic decisions kept the company going even during the Covid-19 pandemic.
But Aalok was not just a valuable and visionary CBO; his personality shone through. To so many of us he was a friend, a mentor, a guide, even something akin to a family member. His can-do attitude and eagerness to attack new challenges had an effect on everyone around him.
Over the months of his illness, his colleagues were often worried and discouraged - but they were constantly amazed and even inspired by his positivity and hope.
His absence is a huge loss to the entire company, not only professionally but personally.
Aalok, you are and always will be missed. Thank you for everything you gave us.
Chief Business Officer, HCT Sun
