Goodbye Dilip

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.)

I haven't really taken so much of a class with him, but I do remember Intro to Classical Music; and more strongly, the single class of Indian National Freedom Movement that I attended with you - it is very difficult for a person to make a deep impression on a random sampling. I feel lucky that I could talk to him before the curtains on B.Tech.
Chat session required about this, I guess.
