BOSTON (Lincolnshire) Feb 21: Anuj Kumar, a resident of Boston in Lincolnshire, passed away following him falling ill with Covid on 27th April 2020. The Malayalee community in the UK and in particular Boston were shocked with the death of Anuj.
His life story was one of courage, determination and passion. But he was plucked away early from life and thus his loss made a huge impact within the Keralite community in the UK.
He arrived in the UK nine years back and studied to become a nurse and he became a qualified nurse in September 2019. Soon he started his nursing career at Pilgrim Hospital Boston in South East Lincolnshire. Within a few months into the job Anuj was faced with one of the biggest challenges in life. The Covid pandemic broke out.
His passion for the job came to the fore when he told his wife and friends that he will not shy away from the fight and he couldnt hold himself back. He wanted to give back to his country what it offered him when he arrived.
He served as a true hero working restlessly by providing the best care he could.
The worst nightmare came true for him when he was tested positive for the Coronavirus. He would have thought about his dreams. He wanted his wife, who has one more year of studies, to complete her nursing qualification.
He did give a fight and he kept coming back to life and gave hope but the virus had the final say and he passed away on 27th April 2020.
Anuj had left an indelible mark in several people’s lives and such was the outpour of grief. They knew Anuj and his dreams very well. His friends in Boston supported the family following his death.
This year Cultural Association of Malayalees Boston are remembering him with hosting a badminton tournament.
