But the fate would have willed otherwise.Captain Ahluwalia was the co-pilot in the plane, which overshot the landing point and finally plunged into a ravine. His body was recovered from the debris on Sunday.

Ahluwalia was a bachelor and he preferred his freedom, said his friends in the Shaheed Bhagat Singh Society at JB Nagar in Andheri (East), a suburb in North West Mumbai.
They were shellshocked to hear about the plane crash and the death of Captain Ahluwalia, who had been with them just two months back to celebrate their Guru's birthday.
Since his childhood, Ahluwalia aspired to become a pilot. “For him, flying was a passion,” said one of his childhood friends in the society, who had rushed to Ahluwalia's residence after hearing about the tragedy.

Ahluwalia was the youngest of four siblings. His two elder brothers manage the family business and run a factory that manufactures motor parts, in Gujarat. Ahluwalia did not join the family business, instead he charted a different course for himself.
Born in 1969, Ahluwalia did his schooling from the Holy Family School in Andheri. He went to NM College, where he did his MCom. After finishing college studies, he joined the Juhu Flying Club.

He had scored 95 per cent in the Air India's entrance exam. According to his friends, his mother was after him coaxing him to get married and settle down somewhere.
When he finally gave his consent, his mother’s joy knew no bounds. But now, she is a shattered woman.
