Professor S. R. Kajale, the gentleman who graduated me with a PhD (after allowing me to pursue the research I wanted to, and write the thesis the way I wanted to) is no longer among us.
From what I gathered (after it was too late to even see him), he passed away in a Pune hospital late on Tuesday, 7th of Feb., 2012 (India time), after undergoing angioplasty on Sunday, 5th of Feb. He was 52.
Today has been one of the saddest days of my life. … May his soul find (Marathi) “sadgati” and peace.
