College bids tearful adieu to Shriyash

Students of St Joseph’s College (Autonomous) on Thursday paid tribute to Shriyash Trivedi following his demise earlier this month. Shriyash, a 20-year-old from Bihar, was pursuing undergraduate studies (HEP) at the college. He drowned on November 7 during his trip in Puducherry with his friends, after being pulled in by tides while swimming in the sea.

His memorial service was attended by his classmates, teachers, and the principal and vice-principal of the college. His lecturer Fr Clarence D’souza said in his tribute: “When I heard the news, I hoped that it wasn’t true. Let us remember the gratitude and the goodness of the youngster.”

Principal Fr Victor Lobo said: “Shriyash was a fine student in class and a true Josephite. Let us pray for his soul to rest in peace and especially for his parents and family for God to give them strength to bear the loss.”
