Belgium blast victim Raghavendran Ganeshan's body arrives

Raghavendran Ganeshan was scheduled to return to India during the last week of May. He planned to settle his wife Vaishali and his two-month-old son Arjun in Pune. But life had other cruel plans for him: Ganeshan's body was brought to Chennai on Tuesday and was received by inconsolable relatives, friends and neighbours.

"Who knew that he wouldn't survive to live in a house that he bought just recently?" P. Balasubramanian, his brother-in-law says.

Ganeshan' parents Annapoorni, C. Ganesan and his brother Chandrasekar Ganesan accompanied the body and reached the city around 2 p.m. on Tuesday on a Jet Airways flight. Even before the body of Ganeshan returned to his residence in Sithalapakkam (about 20 km from Chennai airport), hundreds of his relatives, friends and acquaintances had gathered there to pay their last respects. So much so that, the rather compact house could not accommodate too many, and police had to persuade visitors to form a queue and pay their last respects. Among those who came to pay their last respects were BJP chief Tamilisai Soundararajan and Social Welfare Minister B. Valarmathi.

In a few hours, his body was taken to a crematorium in Mahalakshmi Nagar."He had visited the city just two months ago for the naming ceremony
