Founder of Planbye, Shahid Khan is a professional car rally driver, who lives on the edge is both, exciting but nerve wracking for his family. In 2006, he met with his worst fears. A major accident sent his navigator and him through a life-threating fall down a hill. It felt like the end. As the Maruti Gypsy furiously sped down, he wanted one last opportunity to tell his family how much he loved them.
Thanks to the advanced safety equipment, they survived to tell the tale, but it changed his thinking forever. He woke up from a stupor and realised that apart from professing his love and gratitude to his family, he had not organised and formally shared so many personal details of assets and investments. He could have possibly left them in a maze of documents, procedures and administrative entanglement after his death.
Death is a reality of life. While we know we cannot escape it, we avoid talking about it. The topic is dismissed as morbid or uncomfortable, relegated to times when someone is literally on their death bed, or very old. Shahid personally wanted an easy and extremely secure place where he could upload, update and store documents and other important details that wanted to share after his death. That’s why PlanBye was born. From conception to now, the platform has evolved to include many aspects of end-of-life planning, and action points post death. Planbye is in action in your life, death and beyond.
