Dammit Harvin. We love you so much. Please be at peace. Please be at rest. So talented, funny, and kind. You will remind me to love and reach out more. Thank you.
I am so sorry for your loss. Harvin was a great guy and I am sure he was a wonderful friend to you.
This is heartbreaking.
I know you and his family must be going through a lot and my thoughts are with you. If there is an address where I can send my condolences let me know.
I know these words are not enough– but know that a lot of people are thinking about Harvin with love and feel so much for his family and friends.
You meant so much to this world you didn’t even know,
So many people are stricken with grief and don’t know where to go.
You were the source of inspiration, admiration, fun times and laughter,
Maaan.. I know that there were so many girls that you were after… haha
I remember our days of hip hop, beat boxing, rhymes and the word synchronicity,
yeah you remember how I introduced you to that word while we were in another city.
Where ever and when ever we met, it was like a breadth of fresh air,
I would laugh at the random clothes and style that you would wear.
But that’s what made you special Harvin, that’s what made you unique,
Your words would flow so smoothly every time you would speak.
I wish I had one last chance to say wuddup or give you a bro-hug,
Now, I’m lost and confused and all I can do is shrug.
The world has lost someone really really amazing,
I’m glad I had the chance to see you act, dance and sing.
Peace mah brotha & I’ll see you on the flip side.
I hope you found the internal happiness you yearned.
Dearest Harvin, I can’t believe the reality of your departure from this earth. I know that the restrictions of this world hold back artists in so many ways but somehow you always were able to make me laugh and find a unique voice. I wish I could have known you better because you really had a special vibe about you. You really really truly were one of a kind. I hope your new kingdom is a place where you imagination can shine like none other. I know you are aware of all of this right now so i hope you can do me a favor and keep an eye out for me. I look forward to your influence in the rest of my time and earth. We’ll share stories again soon and talk about all things we have encountered, both seen and unseen. I hope the golf weather is nice up there. Much love
There was not one person who you didn’t crack up. Keep them laughing wherever you are, buddy. I love you.
I only met Harvin a few times, but each time it was a blast. He was such a charismatic person that even though our paths only crossed a few times, he left a huge impression on my friends and I. We kept in touch online and he would always be very supportive. Hearing that he passed away was extremely tragic. If his parents are reading this, I just want them to know that even though you’ve lost a great son, we’ll never forget him. He is alive and well in our memories. We’ve lost a friend, and the world has lost a great artist.
There’s a little less laughter in the world today. You will be missed. Until we meet again, my God hold you in the palm of his hand.
Please pass along to Dr. & Mrs. Sethi,
I am so sorry for your loss. Words are not enough to describe the emptiness in my heart for you.
All of you will be in my prayers as you begin a journey of healing.
May God be with you,
Tom and Cindy
From the first day I met you I knew that you’re uncompromising comedy would touch many people even before you graduated UCI.
I will never forget you, and you’re sincerity, humor and wit will be long missed. We had the pleasure to collaborate together, do a show together and become good friends. Many people do not have the courage and bravery to do what you did with reckless abandoned and you have left many fans and admirers in your wake. I will never forget you. I hope you have found a better place!
I am a better person for having known you and you have left an impression on everyone who had the pleasure of knowing you. You will be missed.
Harvin! Everytime I saw you and hung out with you, I would only feel happy because you would make everyone around you smile or laugh. I always remember laughing with you, and everything was so light hearted :). Thank you for brightening my days and being who you are. I miss you already and wish I could have hung out with you more. I hope you are better now and you will be remembered in only the best way :).
Please pass to Dr and Mrs Sethi, My heart is with you as are my prayers. I know the love you have for your son is beyond measure and may the memories of his life be a joy to you always. May your knowing the Lord give peace and strength in this time of sorrow and healing. Thinking of you in this time and lifting you in prayer. In the love of Christ, Debbie May (VAUMG)
During our time at UCI & SPOP staff, I really admired your contagious zest to find happiness in life and to spread it to all those around you-through comedy, and most importantly, mentoring others. Your presence will forever be missed.
I was in shock when I heard the news. You truly were a unique and talented individual who will be greatly missed. You definitely have made a positive impact in so many lives. I hope your family can get through this extremely difficult time by celebrating your life. We all miss you.
In the eyes of a newbie freshman, you were always one of those “cool” older reps. I looked up to you, as we all did, I hope you know that.
Harvin, i dont know you.. gray, purple or teal.. from one staffer to another i know you touched many lives and made an impression on many. No one can ask anymore of you. RIP.. and my condolences to your family.
Our thoughts, prayers and love to the Sethi family. We love you through and through. There truly are no words to express our deepest sorrow.
-Corey, Amanda, Cameron & Caylor
Thanks for giving the world laughter Harvin. More than you know appreciate it. Love you bud. D
I know we used to sing acapella and it was awesome. Thanks for bringing joy to my life and those around you my friend
RIP Harvin. You will be missed.
I’m heartbroken by this.
Harvin was one of the first people I connected with when I started college. He was such a great friend around Middle Earth & a wonderful partner in our acting classes.
I was always honored when I had the opportunity to help him & Pari with a skit.
He was full of positive energy, passion, ambition, & drive…non stop! Such an admirable guy.
I’m so happy that the life he lived was a full one. He accomplished so much & made a huge impact on the community & culture.
I’m so lucky to have shared so many fun memories of him…..and I suppose it’s a blessing that we have so much Harvin on tape, to replay & make us laugh again!
May God Bless him & his family & friends!
The angels have got a good one up there!
<3, Kelly King
I’m so thankful for having had the opportunity to be on staff with you for SPOP, and been able to be a part of a program that at its core was without a doubt genuinely positive and caring. At the very least it required one to be: unselfish, charitable, sincere, and gracious. Not only were you that, but you exceeded it by being charismatic, full of life, and without question humor. So thank you truly Harvin.
One thing I’ve always admired about you is how you were willing to go for it with your talents, and abilities, and share it with the world. I can only hope that I do that to a degree of what you’ve done.
Take care brotha man, I’ll see you soon enough.
My condolences to your family and loved ones. May your soul rest in peace, Harvin.
I have been thinking back to when I first met you. It was a difficult time for me and you made me laugh so much and treated me so well. I remember spending hours in the study rooms just watching movie trailers. You could make the simplest most mundane things entertaining. You were very talented and kind, I wish we could have kept in touch. You will always be in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you are in peace.
I am so sorry for your loss.
I didn’t know Harvin that well, but I’ll always remember him as a such a kindhearted person.
It’s sad to know that the world has lost such a good human being. I hope that he is at peace.
You were one of a kind and I thank you for all the great times we shared together at UCI. You had an incredibly warm heart and always managed to put a smile on my face. You possessed sincerity, kindness, and a hilarious sense of humor all at the same time. I will miss seeing you and Pari in action–nothing was better than the two of you on camera/stage together. You had a unique bond and amazing friendship with him and it radiated through all those around you. I feel lucky to have known you. The world lost a wonderful person and authentic source of joy this week. You will be greatly missed. Rest in peace buddy.
I never had the chance to meet you but we talked on Facebook chat once, I really enjoyed all your videos and me being a comic as well, hoped to have worked with you. I really wish we could have met and shared a few laughs.
Harvin – I’m so glad you were part of my UCI life. You will always be in my memories.
Pari – You are in my thoughts …
Lots of love.
Harvin was an incredibly talented, amazing human being. He always brought laughter and happiness with anyone who was around him. You will be missed. My prayers go out to the Sethi Family.
By dying You opened the gates of life for those who believe in You; do not let Your brother/sister be parted from You, but by Your glorious power give him/her light, joy, and peace in heaven where You live for ever and ever.
Rest In Peace
Harvin you made my first few years at UCI so much fun! You are so talented, I will never forget you and how you helped us with our team. You are incredible soul and you will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Rest in peace Harvin.
“Why didn’t you stay?” -Lauryn Hill.
I am sad today and will be so for quite awhile. I am learning to embrace my mourning, I will NOT be moving on. I will be strong enough to stand tall tearless and brave enough to bend and cry. And sad enough to know I have to laugh again.
You reminded me that I am better than I think and not quite where I want to be. I am alive to imagination because of you, and will continue inventing the future in your memory.
Rest in Power, citizen of the world
I haven’t seen you since our Middle Earth days at UCI, but I will always remember you for your positivity, upbeat outlook on life, and your neverending ability to make any and everyone laugh and smile. It was an honor being able to see you put your talent at work, but it was more of an honor to be your classmate, co-worker, and friend.
You will be truly missed.
Rest in peace,
I’m heartbroken and speechless. Your time here was short but it was well spent helping others laugh and be happy. You will be missed, I remember all the fun we had in Berkley Court. I will never forget those memories.
Harvin you will live on in our laughter. Be at peace, my friend.
You had a special ability to make people laugh within an instant of meeting you. I watched the music video we shot with you again today– and I never get tired of watching you scramble after your fallen glasses or your staring in awe at a blank TV screen. I only knew you for a short time, but you’re creative spirit instantly made me feel as if we had been friends for a long time. I fear the world has lost a truly amazing person, I’m glad I got to know you when I did. Be at peace.
I was so sad to hear about this-I was on a singing team with Harvin my freshman yr of college and he was such a nice, friendly, and talented person. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
Harvin made me and millions of people laugh. I loved his jokes exposing South Asian cliche’s. I loved all the video’s when they came out as they brought me joy. My prayers are with his family. You are an inspiration to young south asian entertainers across the globe. Much Love.
I LOVE YOU MY SON….
I HAVE LOST YOU FOR A MOMENT…
WHERE ARE YOU??????
YOU MADE US PROUD…..
YOU WILL LIVE FOREVER…..THROUGH YOUR FRIENDS…..
YOU ARE A SPECIAL BIRD. WHO MIGRATED FOR SOMETIME TO A SAFER AND PEACEFUL PLACE…….
DAD MYSELF AND YOUR SISTER ARE VERY PROUD OF YOU <3 <3
A simplicity in your smile. A truth in your eyes. A passion in your heart. I’ll remember these as an integral part of your makeup. Wish more had a chance to witness them while you were here…
Harvin, when i first spoke to you and finally met Pari and you, i felt like we all knew each other. You made me laugh and our friendship grew day by day, filled with laughter. It was our pleasure to have you spend time with us , stay with us on your short visits and you looked after papi so well. You were always positive and we discussed everything without borders.
Thanksgiving dinner, over night stays, and meetings which Biju, papi and I will never forget. You were always polite, sweet, and ready to help. In turn you never asked for any help. We spoke about life in general, I wish I had listened to your conversations more in depth, when I used to ask you if you were o.k. you said yes to make sure we would not worry.
I miss our conversations, chats on fb, and visits, just spending the simple time. I remember you telling me don’t move to Toronto, and if you all do, I will visit. I wish you could visit, now i know that you are in peace. Just wish it was different, you were here. I wish, our talks about touring with Tak, and Biju had taken place, cos you would have been here.
You were and still are a very special and dear friend/brother. You are a shining star, and when I look back at the interview all i do is laugh, and especially the photos.
Rest Peace My Brother…Luv You Always.
You are a shining star and always will be. So much memories in short little time of 5 yrs. Your visits, over night stays, meetings with biju, papi and I will always be cherished. You always looked after papi with such care and love and now you have crossed over to the other side.
Our conversations, plans of touring with Tak and Biju is a mere distance, may be we all will meet again. I wish you were here to make us laugh and would visit us, but that is all gone now.
When i interviewed you and Pari, it was a very special time and holds special memories. I wish the phone would ring and you would say, kavi I am coming over with Tak to see you and stay the night.
All the time you spent with us, we will always cherish. Your last visit was so much fun, when you and Tak came over and our last conversation being feb 14th, when you said be ready “Uncle Sethi is coming to Toronto to visit”, I wish you were here spending time with us…
I wish you would come back. We miss you and Love You. You were a special person and always will be, talented, funny, loving, giving, and down to earth.
इतना दुःख था यार तो मुझे बता दिया होता, और कुछ नहीं तो तुझे गले लगा लिया होता.
You will live with us forever through all your fantastic work, Pari’s expressions; and through your friends, who will be living your dream of becoming the citizens of the world.
Sanjay Mathur (Pari’s Dad)
Thank you for sharing your art and more importantly your culture with all of us. You have left a mark on many of us, and you will be missed terribly.
Rest in peace friend
Thank you for every smile and laugh you have given me my friend. Your friendship and humor will always be cherished. You will be missed, but your humor will be shared for eternity. RIP.
Rest in peace.
I did not know you personally but guess you were a friend of Pari, ‘the’ friend I must say.Even when I did not know you personally, why does it feel that I lost someone very dear – some people have that charisma.when I see your fotos my heart ache to know you even better and why God did not give me a chance to be your friends.
But have a nice afterlife.
-Hemant Mathur (Raja),
Rest in peace Harvin…
I am left in absolute shock and sadness. You were such an amazingly wonderful person and I am so lucky to have met you when we studied abroad together. I will never forget you coming to keep me company while I took naps and you ate sandwiches 🙂 You undoubtedly are the funniest person that I know and I am in such awe still of your drive and what you accomplished. I don’t know anyone who went for their dreams like you did. I wish I could have said goodbye and tell you how much you meant to me. I hope you are in a better place and I expect you to make me laugh again someday 🙂
we’l miss you harvin always…you were our hero n always b…lots of love for you
Thinking about you Mr. and Mrs. Sethi.
Harvin, I hope you are happy and in peace wherever you are. Been looking at your videos a lot this week and remembering GWA.
It has taken me some time to gather my thoughts and feelings. When I heard of your passing, I was like every other person: I was in shock. You and I, buddy, we will always have the good memories. I know that, but I do miss you.
When I wrote about you back in 2006 for Thirteen Minutes, I knew you would garner the success you deserved, touching every life you met. I know you touched mine.
You were my inspiration, and like someone had mentioned, every time we met, it was a breath of fresh air. We always talked about how we both were going to do great things, and achieve what we wanted to. We used to talk about our future collaborations as performer and as writer.
Where ever you may be, Harvin, I hope you are watching over me, and seeing how much you have inspired me, motivated me, and helped me pursue my dream. I always told you that you were a true inspiration to people, and you always will be. I hope you find what you’re looking for, and that we may meet again in this life or in another lifetime.
The world was fortunate to be blessed by your short presence on this planet.
I love you, Harvin, my dear friend.
I found out about Harvin just today, and even though it’s too late for me to get to know him personally, I’m glad I had the chance to see some of the videos of him on Youtube and have him brighten my day. Funny, funny guy and he clearly had a lot of really good friends.
Rest your soul gently, my man.
I really feel horrible when such a talent goes down. I do not know you people but are my people and that hurts more than it should. I hope the almighty gives you courage to go through the pain, though he will never be forgotten, but if good times did not last then these will not either.
Its only the near&dears feel the pain most than anyone can, but i still pray that “MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL”
i just went through about a hundred of our emails for my first jhoomti shaam planning gig. working with you and pari was amazing. and im glad id reserved my right to veto power then because some of the emails were just so-not-stage-appropriate silly ideas.
ill certainly miss talking to the man behind the mustache.. but im happy theres a library of Uncle Ramesh works thatll always be there for comfort.
“you’ve got a friend” or “hear you me”. you can have your pick.
Although i only met you once or twice, I felt like I really knew you, when i was a little younger I would always watch your’s and Pari’s videos on this site, and I would always get a good laugh out of it. You had a great personality, a great humor, and you were overall just a great guy. I know you’re in a better place now, and I send my condolences with the Sethi Family.
Damn dude when i found out you died i didn’t believe it AT ALL! i
was like nah its probably part of his act or something but when i
found out you really did die, i was totally shocked. You died at a
very young age man, God took you way to fast but like the saying
goes, only the best die young. You won’t be forgotten!!! R.I.P
hope your at rest the days I remember is u have always been a joker and I am so proud of you of what you have achieved a day ain’t gone by when I haven’t thought of u but watchin you just makes me laugh but I hope you r making them laugh up above will always be thinking of you
love you loads
I worked on the same UCI staff as him one year. From what I remember, Harvin was just so positive, charismatic, and kind. After we graduated, I heard updates about his rising star and I cheered for him.
I hope he is at peace, and that he knows how missed he is. My condolences to his friends and family.
I still can’t believe you’re gone…Unfortunately it wasn’t till recently that I realized how much you influenced me and my life.
I will probably never meet someone like you ever again…I miss you terribly and wish that I got the chance to say bye to you…
Your loving friend….always and forever
and now there is what there is to do.
so we’re getting busy doing that.
thank you for the push.
Rest in peace. I met you for a short period of time and left a lasting impression on me. My condolences for the family.
Pari, I’m so sorry to hear about this tragic news. I just looked up Harvin becuase I hadn’t talked to him in a while, and found out this sad news. It makes me sick to think that he left so early. He was a great guy! the bottom line is harvin had a heart of gold. Please give my condolances to his family. I put a link to a video from youtube that harvin did with me from a series called Urban Guardian. He brilliantly played Omar in two episodes. Every time people watched it they said that guy is great! and he was!!!! I know you guys were best friends, and I’m so sorry for you. Let me know if their is anything I can do?
Harvey Dent, Herv, Marvin wif an H
But the name that fits you best is my friend. I’ll never forget our good times man. I’ll continue all our unfinished works and ideas in true Harv style. Always funny and true. “…Sethi like my volume!” COTW!
Harvin – My smiling star
Memories of your smiling face – right from your child hood till now, will never fade. You achieved what “you wanted “in your short span of life.
Rest in peace my beta.
Your forever loving Masi
Poonam Masi, Keith Uncle, Nina and Natasha
Inna lillahi wa ina ilayhi rajioon. “We belong to God and to him we shall return”. May you be in peace, comfort and tranquility Harvin. May you see all the beautiful things of this world, and reflect those always… May your beautiful soul shine down upon us all…
Though I could never meet you in person, despite many attempts, I still felt that connection with you that I have with my friends. You were funny, sweet, and very charming. You leave us with lots of memories and fun times, which will never be forgotten. Though YouTube and the desi comedy scene will never be the same without you, at least we know that you are still here, watching over us.
Lots of love,
Some things just don’t make sense..but maybe it’s supposed to be that way. I remember when I first met you freshman year at Irvine. You had your guitar out in hand and a big smile on your face. Everytime thereafter I only have such great memories of you..your smile and laughter were so contagious! I know no matter where you are you are smiling from above..
rest in peace Harvin, we all miss you
my prayers, love and thoughts with your family and friends
No words can begin to describe such a tragic loss. My only interaction with P&H are through watching videos online. It’s easy to tell what a great personality Harvin really was. I pray that the Lord watch over his soul and give his family and loved ones endless strength to persevere through this difficult time.
Om Tat Sat.
I am so sorry for your loss. I watched your video ” Crank Dat Curry Sauce” and laughed so hard! May Harvin be at peace wherever he is.
I was really shocked whn i heard the news.God bls u RIP.
im so sorry i dont know any of u but i watched harvins vids they r funny yeh RIP
A couple of weeks ago, I dedicated my whole radio show to harvin by featuring some of his clips. He will be missed. Thanks for all the laughs. RIP
I’m writing from France. I never met you for real Harvin. I just found some of your videos via youtube and your myspace profile. And they made me laugh. I used to repeat your jokes to my family. And they made them laugh. You never knew me but I can assure you that you achieved big as a comedian : your work brought happiness to people.
Harvin was truly a role model, and will be remembered forever and ever. He was an indpiration to the world, and made us laugh every day…
why do the good/awesome/amazing go so young?
I was never an avid follower of Pari and Harvin but I did see most of their couple of their videos and Harvin;s loss is sad RIP
love you HARVIN <3
We never met Harvin, but he seemed like a really nice guy. We found a video on YouTube about the Crank That Curry Sauce song and it was so funny. Surely his personality was the same way. We didn’t even know you but we will still miss you all the same.
Rest in Peace. <3
This may be the worst feeling I can remember.
Harvin was a friend of mind from the neihborhood, growing up in Riverside Green, in Dublin, Ohio.
Harvin and I have kept in touch through Facebook ever since it’s advent.
Work brings me to Southern California next week and we had been talking the last year about how we looked forward to catching up in person. I didn’t know if I would be able to see him perform at the Laugh Factory, or what it would be, but I sent him a facebook message a couple of weeks ago and still had no idea until about 20 minutes ago, when I googled his name to search for any upcoming events, and stumbled upon a page dedicated to his memory.
I had to shut my office door here in Ohio, to gather myself.
I am stunned and feel a profound sense of loss, despite not seeing him in years.
To you all who likely know him much better than I did, the one thing I can speak to is how he was as a kid, before Illinois, and before he could ever find California on a map.
Just as you all remember him to be funny, fun loving, and caring – that was the best friend I had growing up at Riverside Elementary.
Just wanted to let you all know, your pain is shared. Your love for him is shared even more so.
If his parents ever see this – know how much I will pray for you both, and that his friends back here in the midwest haven’t – and never will forget.
Can’t wait to see you finally perform when I join you Harvin.
Parminder, Seema and (a.k.a.) Natalie
From your next door neighbors from the old Riverside Green days of Columbus, OH.
My thoughts go out to all of you. Harvin was a wonderful person and he brought joy to everyone he touched. He will be truly missed.
Denny just sent me a text telling me of Harvin’s passing. It broke my heart ! Harvin, Laine and Denny have been keeping in touch of facebook. We were able to see Pari and Harvin perform in Boulder, CO (CU) a few years ago they were so funny, we tried to go to dinner, but Harvin was unable to free up.
Our thoughts and prayer are with you.
The first video I watched was the Uncle Ramesh Feat. Harvin Sethi- Brown. It was actually the first video that couldnt stop laughing, even after it ended. I came on the website, and saw the news. My heart just dropped. Harvin man, im gonna miss your videos. You made me smile, thank you
I’m so sorry for your loss. Harvin was an amazingly hilarious, talented person who was probably a dear friend to you. I was and still am a fan of all of your videos. stay strong my friend
Today I got a call from my friend telling me to see a few funny videos on youtube, thats when I remembered to show her your video “Brown” it made her laugh, and it made me laugh again too but then when I scrolled down the comments that I saw just crushed me. I have seen so many of your videos and it’s so sad that until today I didn’t know of what had happened. I may not know you personally Harvin but I promise this, your videos made me laugh so much and I was a great fan of yours. There are so many questions jumping in my head right now. You were too good for this world. You had too good a humour, I could judge from the videos. RIP. You may not be here anymore but you will always put a smile or laugh on someones face. Everyone is going to be connected to you through your videos. RIP, God is holding you in the palm of his hand. 🙂
rest in paradise, mr. kaboother.
Thank you all for such lovely comments,tributes to our exceptional son who left so young but left a big mark through his performances, his love and passion for comedy.Thank you Mat Matmiller and Marcea, please email me your number and I will get in touch with you. I understand how dear and close he was to all of you. He is at peace and is cheering up God up above with his performances.
Plaese Email me at email@example.com.
hi i am harsh and this is a very sad moment to me almost 1 of the sadest not to be rude but how did he die? plus he brought so much joy in this world with out him i would not have a real life ur the best whaooo! ohh yh and remember to crank dat curry sauce yaar and i love mango juice to and tea is pretty chee
love, harsh please email me friend who is close to harvin and u r pari
Harvin, i still cant believe i had the privilege of sharing a stage with you first. Growing up with you was an absolute delight. Im speechless and will miss you terribly.
we love you harvin
While driving today, I heard the original version of “Stuntin’ like my Papa” on the radio, and I remembered Pari and Harvin’s version and how it always made me smile. I came home and looked up Harvin’s completed version of “Brown” on YouTube and as I was listening to it, I scrolled down and saw the “RIP Harvin” comments and I was (and still am) utterly speechless.
Though I never had the opportunity to meet Harvin in person, I have always admired his vibrant, smiling self since I saw him with Pari on their Crank dat Curry Sauce video. Ever since I saw that video, I have held so much respect for him for not only following his dreams as a comedian, especially in our South Asian community, but also for his innate ability to make people smile and brighten someone’s day. I always will. RIP Harvin, you have left an indelible mark on us all and you will never be forgotten.
I may not have known you personally, but you definitely had an impact on me, and many many other people. Thank you for pursuing your passion, and always being able to make me laugh. You don’t need me to tell you this, but you were a great comedian and you will not be forgotten.
I don’t know you very well at all but you seem to be a really awesome guy. I found out you passed away when I scrolled down your youtube page and people were like “RIP HARVIN” and I’m like “who’s harvin?” since I only knew the Uncles…First I thought it was a joke or a rumor..like that rumor that Justin Bieber died since it seemed impossible that someone as great as you would die but then I found out that it was true. I still can not belive and I don’t think I ever will. I will probably be waiting for a new youtube video or something…
harvin, my pindhmaster,
i miss you so much, i cant even begin to tell you. there’s soo much i want to tell you and laugh with you about. so many hindi words that i read in my dictionary that i wanna turn into insulting phrases with you. i dont know where to start and what to say. ill speak to you in the language that you knew made sense to me. i hear this song and it reminds me of you and i cant help but cry and laugh at the same time. hope you’re taking care of yourself up there. can’t wait till i see you again, we’ll do giddha again on the stage as aunt jemima sits in the corner in a san fran club while everyone else gets hyphy. missing you always
We actually started watching your videos two years ago. It kept us up all night, laughing our heads off. We even named ourselves after you two. Harvin was our favorite “uncle” hands down. Our favorite song was Stuntin’ like my papa. We practically have all your videos memorized, and quote them all the time. We perfected our indian accents because of your videos. In Addition, we would like to thank you for the tips in your bollywood acting video with tips; we might actually use those one day 🙂 RIP HARVIN. We lowe you.
Its been about 3 months now, and I still think of you often man. Broke down for the first time since it happened last week when I was talking to Amreeta about you. I was watching some old Steven Wright stand up comedy (the one with the deadpan delivery) and I instantly thought of you when it came on because that was one of the MANY great comedians that YOU put me up on. I wish I could post up with you somewhere right now and critique old school classic Hollywood cinema like we used to. Or watch Richard Pryor’s satire of the 1970’s. You had a knowledge about the entertainment industry (historical and contempory) that I’m not sure a lot of people knew about you, but I do, and little things like what I’ve mentioned above will ALWAYS keep you in my psyche. Anyways I’m rambling, and I’m mourning, and I don’t have a lot of people that I can talk to about this so I’m here typing this to you, hoping that through the power of Elohim, Guru Nanak, Christ, Buddha, Muhammad, or Jah that this message gets relayed to you somehow.
*still spillin out my brew for you, brotha
Your name popped up on my facebook today man. I miss our long chats over aim about everything in the wee hours of the morning. Truly miss you Harvin. I’m pretty sure you knew but you were a role model for me you showed that with determination you can achieve so much. I still can’t quite believe your not here but I’m sure you’re joking around on some other plane of existence rocking to Oasis and telling jokes…
I just found out about this today. I feel bad I didn’t do a better job at staying in contact with you Harvin. I’m glad we got to connect a few times out here in LA and in San Francisco. I’ll really miss you Harvin and I hope you’re in a better place. I couldn’t have asked for a better co-frontman for our old band Upstairs in the Basement. You were a great friend and great guy.
To our Dear, sweet, Harvin, I’m seeing this, but I am not believing it. I just heard the news last night from Kristen and I had to try your cell phone number just to see if you’d answer. I missed my phone call from you this year on Mother’s Day. You called me every year on that day. Little did I know that this year on Mother’s Day, you were gone. We have fond memories of your band, ‘Upstairs in the Basement’, playing in our back yard. And how many times did I pin your flower on you for all those High School dances? You always had an extra smile to give away to someone needing one. You and Kristen sang so lovely at our nieces wedding. And later danced at the reception to some songs from “Grease”. When Clif passed away, Kristen, Staci, and I all sat down and watched the video from CHS Production of “Grease”. We laughed and we cried. Kristen is coming home for a visit this weekend and I have a feeling that we will be watching again and laughing and crying again. Please tell Clif hello from us and you two keep the angels smiling. We will all miss you, Harvin! With much love from your “2nd Mother” and the rest of the Anderson family, too. You were like family to us. And our hearts and prayers go out to your Mom, Dad, and Sister. Live on forever, Harvin Sethi, in the hearts of sooooooooo many!
I briefly knew Harvin in high school. He was always so nice and SO funny! He will be missed!
Harvin, you were such a sweet person, so cool and beautiful. It was a privilege to know you. The last time I saw you, you were huggin me after a high school musical and you were in costume and you were terrific. What an amazing and sincere friend you were-and you went on to become successful and — your talent was endless.
Miss you. I know you are in God’s care now. I don’t know what was causing you hurt, but please know that you will never hurt again-you’re in Heaven, and Heaven is certainly a better place than here on this Earth. Love always.
I’ve known Harvin since middle school. He was always so nice and had a big personality. I followed his stand-up career and watched his and Pari’s videos. I spoke to him on facebook every now and then. I’m sorry to have learned of his passing. He was such a good, funny, and nice person. He will always be remembered. Such a wonderful person has left this world too soon.
I just heard the news this week through a friend and am in complete shock. How can it be??? Even though we struggled to keep in touch since high school, whenever we did get a chance to chat, it always felt like no time had passed at all. I’ll always remember the fun times in high school golfing, teaching me guitar, sharing laughs, as well as watching him become a rising star out West.
Harvin, it’s clear that your friends and countless people you have touched during your 25yrs here will always remember you in the highest regard. One thing I know, everybody in Heaven will be laughing a bit harder from now on. Check your ‘Prayer Inbox’ for my message, buddy.
I’ve known Harvin since high school and I was so sad to hear the news of his passing. He was such a great friend to those around him and always so full of happiness. We were in the musicals together and I remember countless after-school rehearsals where he would keep us entertained for hours. I was so happy to hear of his success in L.A. because I expected nothing less from him. He was truly a great person and he will be missed.
hello harvin i really did not care about your video but u r a nice loving caring guy god called u up he decided wrong jai swaminayaran rip
You are truly amazing. You will be missed. R.I.P <3
I loved his youtube videos – im pretty sure hes a great guy as well
What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore–
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over–
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?

RIP man (gone but not forgotten)
You don’t know me. My kids just discovered the crank dat curry sauce video, and love it! I went to this website, and found out this information. I am so sorry for your loss. My dad left this earth the same way, with many, many unanswered questions. The pain does not go away, time is the only healer. You will get through it, but never get over it. God bless you all.
I just heard the news late last night. I live in Mexico now and it seems news got here a little late.
My wife and I both went to highschool with Harvin and are both completely floored by this news.
I’m so sorry for your loss.
Harvin made so many people laugh. You will be missed Harvin. I don’t have a highschool yearbook with me in Mexico, but I believe I recall Harvin being voted most likely to succeed or headed for stardom or something along those lines. I believe he did just that. Watching crank dat curry sauce made me laugh till I cried.
It seems like ages ago that we were in plays together and we both went to a medical careers summer camp together too.
Rest in Peace Harvin
Harvin! Hope busting out the jokes in heaven brother. I think the best tribute to you is to see people laughin whenever you look down upon us.
I dint know you while you were here, but I really do wish to catch ya on the flip side. You were a star here, and now your a superstar shining bright!
@Pari – Be strong my friend, Harvin is always by your side!
I still cannot believe that Harvin Sethi, that great comedian died. Man, he was an awesome guy, he made us laugh through the parodies he posted on youtube. They say that geniuses die at an early age. Harvin was a genius. He was the boss of comedy
All I’d like to say is that may your soul rest in peace, Harvin. We miss you… :'(
You were hilarous and you will be missed dearly
Dear Pari and family, me and my cousin Evana are soooooo sorrry to hear about your loss. the two of us grew up watching you guys and we idolized you two. though we didnt know you giys the two of us were inspired by yout awesomeness. we laughed our minds off watching your brilliant videos. you guys always looked like you were making them purely for fun. the two of you reminded us of each because we are bestfriends and we cant even imagine what it must be like for you to have lost harvin. may all o our prayers be with you. love ivy and evana…
Just thinking of you today and wanted to say HI. Hugs x
We had the pleasure of interviewing him and what a kind hearted person he was, RIP.
God bless xx
I am so sorry about your loss.
I loved Harvin’s videos-it is true that is smile, and laughs, were contagious.
Harvin, RIP you will be missed.
harvin was a guy who really made me laugh. I have never personally met him, but i have seen his youtube videos and comedy acts. He really touched and changedm my life!
Just wanted to stop by and say Merry Christmas to you fam, we spent the last 2-3 holidays together and this is the first that I will not be with you; and I don’t know what I’m supposed to feel at this stage of my grieving. I’m still sad, angry, peaceful, lethargic, reminiscent, and triumphant all in one 26 year old body. I wish you were still here and I could relay to you how much I miss you, because I never got to stress the importance you had in my life while you were still here. So my naiveness has me writing this to you, irregardless of my lack of faith in an ominopotent being, in the hopes that you will read it and reach the kind of catharsis that keeps the minds of artists from leaving us too soon (shout to Jimi Hendrix- your personal all time favorite)
RIP, citizen of the world

Have a good one up there.. and save a seat for the rest of us..
God is One 🙂

Harvin was hilarious…he managed to make so many people laugh and smile,along with Pari. I think thats a great accomplishment,and I will miss him for this exact reason. May he rest in peace. Stay strong Pari.Although Im a complete stranger, you have my support 100%.
This is so not fair! Just this week I was introduced to Pari and Harvin by my cousin and she shows me Crank That Curry Sauce and also tell me that one of them is dead. I listened to the song over and over and every time I listened to it I wanted to come to the website and today I find out that Harvin is the one who died. 🙁 I didn’t even get to enjoy their great friendship. RIP Harvin and may you live a long life Pari. God bless the both of you here and after. 🙂
I was going through my myspace account and damn it to god I erased all of my messages and stuff. I made curry the day I found out about you guys and didn’t even know about you. That was like almost 4 years ago. I deleted everyone on myspace because I got depressed and wanted to see everyone instead of looking at their pictures. I’m soo sorry Pari!!!! You guys would have went really far. Did that kids cartoon ever take off, there were like a bunch of different cultures or something? I’m soo damn sorry.
i thought you were still alive but anyways good humor
My friend and I stumbled across your videos and we loved them. We started crying from laughter…and when we visited your website, and saw the memorial, we started to cry. We miss you! Your videos made us soooo happy.
wow i didnt know harvin passed away i just always used to watch his videos im so sorry for your loss.
Harvin, my love, I am missing you so much. I just read through some of our old gchat conversations; too hilarious. You were the most amazing friend. You always kept it real, made me laugh more than anyone in the world, and constantly encouraged me to stay focused on my goals. I still feel like you are here, and you are going to stop by in the lexus with your cool sunglasses and fake moustache…
It was great working with you on Blink, R.I.P. brother, your comedy your talent and your charm will live on as your legacy.
Too young, too talented, you will be missed by many. Sadly, Wajid
Harvin, I cherish all the memories we’ve made together, from spontaneous jam sessions to our short stage time together to all your randomness that always seemed to put a smile on my face. Such a talented artist and an even better friend. Love you and miss you, bro. Pari, even though we haven’t met you and the family are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you are all well.
Wow I just found out. I’m shocked. Dude was hella funny and gonna be missed
I luv crank dat curry sauce and brown they were so awesome, but now there wont be any thing… RIP Harvin
I am a big fan of you.
Why did you have to go so soon…. 🙁
Rest In Peace,
Harvin. its been a year.
I still miss you daily.
Thank you for making me realize that sometimes we don’t get another chance to make it right.
You were an amazing friend and an amazing artist.
Thank you for believing in me.
I feel your presence every now and then.
Thanks for sticking around.
LOVE YOU ALWAYS.
My condolences to you. It must be tough without him and I cant tell you how shocked I was when I read your homepage. I will always love crank that curry sauce.
You guys were a great team. and no one could replace your comedy or your style. its unfortunate that this happen to harvin. I am soo sorry.
With great regret.
Hey man, RIP
You were a great citizen of the world.
God is One.
Your favourite quotes.
“Most of us would be upset If we were accused of being “silly” ..however..it comes from the old English word “seilig” and it’s literal definition is”to be blessed , happy, healthy and prosperous.”
Comedy is simply a funny way of being serious.
My name is Karim Abdullah al-Hassan Jabir and I am from Pakistan. I enjoy Harvin very much he has brought together both our countries through the use of comedy. we love him and i will erect a statue of him in pakistan. JAI HO HARVIN
I’m soooo sorry to hear about Harvin he was a very nice man…well he seemed like he was. He was very funny and good looking too! I hope you guys are feeling better now.
Lot of Love,
To Harvin’s family and friends;
I never had the pleasure of knowing Harvin, but from what everyone says, he was a great guy. I loved his videos, they made me and my family laugh whenever we saw them. I’m so sorry for your loss. Take comfort in knowing that he was loved by many.
You are sooo funny and the world will miss you and your way too make people love and laugh. I will always be a fan of you and your talent. May God bless you rest in peace.
Checking back in, homie. You know I still think about you whenever I watch standup comedy because you were the one who introduced me to the art form. All of the discussions we had about legendary comics like Lenny Bruce, pryor and Steven wright;you had a grasp of that world that I’m only beginning to appreciate now, I wish I could have told you this in person, yet somehow I think you know.
i cant believe its a year since you left us Harvin *hugs*
I was thinking about you today when I heard soulja boi on the radio.. i still laugh about your videos. wish we could still laugh together. youre the best. we will never forget you.
He was a great man and will always be remembered… 🙁
Harvin Sethi! You were theeee best comedian I have ever seen. You always brighten up my day with your funny youtube videos.
Pari keep on rockin!
Was thinking about you today and I just wanted to say I miss you and I love you brother.
Many of us don’t realize how important we all are in this intricate puzzle we call life. Harvin, you were an integral piece to this puzzle. Your laughter and kind heart truly connected so many of those around you. You are truly missed.
Even though I just saw his videos, Harvin was a funny and talented young man. You were the best Harvin and I will never forget you. May god bless you!
whattup man, I really appreciate this site still being up. It is a place I can come when I am thinking of you, or if I have something to say to you. Every once in a while something will happen or I’ll be a funny situation and think to myself, “damn if Harvin was here right now he’d have me in stitches!” A lot of people talk about your comedy, it made you a household name for many Desis, but I also remember your off-stage presence. When you weren’t “Ramesh” or your stand-up persona, but just Harvin the guy you could talk about Richard Pryor, Lenny Bruce, or Carlin, and what those comedians represented, not just to the art form, but to upholding free speech in this country. To make people laugh is a certain kind of intelligence, and you really opened my eyes to that.
Thank you Harvin. You continue to make us all smile! Blessed be your journey…grace & peace.
Just found out! Very funny guy, always made me smile! very sad to here, still in shock!! 🙁 Lots of love to the family!
omg i had no clue he had passed i just got done watching ctcs to follow the web i am so sorry for your loss
its not fair…i loved this guy…..these videos we always made references to these videos when we talked about brown people, I am really really really sorry, I hope you are entertaining everyone in heaven Harvin….
Me and my cousin used to watch your videos all the time. Our parents enjoyed it as well. It makes South Asians proud knowing that one of their very own are talented entertainers out there. You were truly one of them nevertheless the old man upstairs decided you would be better off with him. Thank you for truly inspiring “brown” kids that being a doctor or lawyer isn’t everything. You have inspired people to follow their dreams.
REST IN PEACE.
A kid from Canada.
Having heard you on so many occasions say you wanted to inspire others, it’s surreal reading these comments about the impact you had on people’s lives from around the world. I miss you, man. I have ideas for sketches and jokes floating around that I can’t wait to talk to you about one day. Not a day goes by I don’t wish you were still with us.
You know, I’ve never actually met Pari or Harvin, but you dont need to meet them to enjoy their loving and playful personalities.
My friend told me about the crank that curry sauce video a few years ago, and thats what got me hooked to you two. As an Indian myself, ive been surrounded by everyone saying “I want to be a doctor” “i want to be an engineer” “i want to make money” and its the same old same old, dry, dreams that parents have injected upon us. When I saw your videos, I realized, I dont have to be like every other indian, I dont have to do anything I didnt want just for the money. I realized that I would be much happier if I did what I loved.
Watching your videos only reinforced this realization. Here I am, seeing two indian friends, that are having the time of their lives making videos, doing comedy, and making people laugh. The happiness is almost radiant.
I was obsessed with this website for a week or so. I explored every nook and cranny, watching every video of you two. Once I saw everything twenty or thirty times, i started moving on. I went back to my life, but with the realization that I could do what *I* wanted to do and still be happy. I remember the day when I decided to check back on your website to see if you posted anything new; that was the first time I found out that Harvin passed away. No one around me, in my life, has died, so I honestly am completely clueless as to how it feels. And although Harvin was no close friend, or family member, or anything like that, When I saw that he passed away… I felt my heart drop. I was really sad that day, I couldn’t believe that he was gone forever.
Its been over a year since I found out he was dead, and although I knew he was dead, When I came here again, I felt my heart drop again. This man that helped me realize the truth to happiness is gone forever, and I never got the chance to thank him.
Reading the other messages that people have left… It just makes me wish he could read these messages and realize how much people loved him. He unknowingly inspired me to be who I wanted to be; who knows how many other people he inspired.
May he rest, in peace.
Much respect fellows. Just discovered you and love your college videos!!
Harvin would have been 28 yera old today. Reading all the comments, from people who have never even met him but have been so inspired by him, I feel to be a proud dad. Happy birthday son. You will keep on inspiring people through your videos and make them laugh. Laughter is the best medicine. I have been watching and sharing your videos today and laughing ( crying at heart) away. They are hilarious.
God bless you son. Be happy where you are. We love you and miss you very much
Mom Dad and your little Sister
Im Stunting like my papa..
Lets get a new video out soon Uncles..
I just found out about this… and I’m shocked. Often it’s the people that make others smile who are hurting the most. I found the Pari and Harvin channel when I was a teenager, and it was the first time I had seen desi comedy on youtube. At the time, there were no desi youtubers and you guys were path-breaking. I really enjoyed your videos and it made me feel like finally someone was making comedy that I could relate to growing up. I’m so deeply saddened by this, and I hope that mental health awareness increases so that we don’t lose any more bright, young, brilliant people. Rest in peace, Harvin.
Thanks to Pari this site is still up. I has been more than 5 years but it feels like it never happened. He would have been 31 today. We miss you dearly my son. This is the only communication we have, hope they have internet access up there and you are reading your emails and comments. It is beyond comprehension to read these heart felt comments, how many lives you have touched and inspired. i am very proud of you son. You will keep making people laugh for times to come. May Waheguru be with you. We love you.
Mom Dad and your little sister
Dear har in bhaya, you meant the world to me. I love your YouTube videos. I hope that you rest in peace. I still like to watch your videos and would love to watch them later on also
I am just finding out about this (August 17, 2016), I was watching the video Crank That Curry Sauce and I thank you for all the laughter and happiness you all have brought me with this one little video. Thank You and I hope your family and friends grows stronger everyday.
~~All the love
