“By blessing of God and my father, I have reached 70% of the Goal written on 21/12/06,” states Suraj Parmar’s personal diary (see pic), which officials from Kasarvadavli police station recovered from his residence earlier this week. Parmar had committed suicide on October 7.

A police officer said Parmar had wanted to secure his family’s future and had several goals that were yet to be accomplished. “One of his dreams was to execute a 20-lakh-sq-ft project and retire. Another one was to build a posh 20,000-sq-ft bungalow with a one-acre lawn for him and his family,” the officer said.

Parmar wanted to own 10 high-end cars of which eight would be of famous international brands. He also wrote about wanting to operate from a plush 25,000-sq-ft office in Thane. On March 25, 2013, Parmar mentioned in the diary that he had achieved 70 per cent of the goals.

A few pages of the diary, which mid-day accessed, reveal Parmar’s desire for his sons to settle down. While he wanted Abhishek, his elder son, to become Thane’s biggest jeweller, he hoped his younger son Akshit would become the region’s most renowned developer or a Class-I officer. Parmar wanted his parents to socialise and donate generously to the needy.

He himself wanted to be an institution, rather than a person and had plans to build an orphanage, old age home, schools and hospitals for the underprivileged. “Parmar was a helpful person and was always there for the needy,” said Sonesh Dedhia, treasurer, MCHI-CREDAI (Thane).
