Prof. Veeraraghavan passed away yesterday. He is the single most broad-minded, sympathetic person that I have ever come across in my life. He inspired hundreds of students to be better human beings and taught us what sincerity, honesty and caring means. I don't know how to write about a person who every single time I met him made me ponder for hours on the kindness of his words. May he rest in peace.
(There's a wiki of memories of Dilip. It's a very nice idea because everyone has so much to say about him, and I really hope it grows.)
