I was just playing from the Orgelbüchlein für Anna Magdalene Bach and thought: I must Google Trilochan, who gave me this book 40 years ago.
So sad to read that Trilochan has passed away. I did not know him well, but remember that we had some great discussions about music, back in 1974/1975, when I was on an assignment to Shell Oil, in Houston. We had several dinner parties and other outings with him and other friends in those days. He lent me a small clavichord and gave me some music books to play from. Never saw him again since that time. He was such a gentle person then and I am sure he must have been all his life.
I was a classmate of Trilochan Padhi as well during 1959-62 at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. I do recall him as a brilliant student and a man of very refined taste. I last met him in spring, 1968, when I visited him from Halifax, Canada, in his dorm at Harvard.
I was a classmate of Trilochan Padhi for three years at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. His intelligence and intellect shone brilliantly among all his classmates and I knew he was destined to be a great scientist/engineer. I am very saddened by his passing away and offer sincere condolences to his family.
Trilochan Padhi was my classmate in Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India. A very brilliant student. Since then I have met many people, who worked with him, talking highly about him. I am very sad to learn about his death.
Although I did not know him well, I knew his family very well, especially his sweet mother-in-law Emily Rice and daughters Elizabeth and Catherine. I remember hearing of his love for his family and of his many varied interests. He will be missed by many and his influence will continue to affect others in the future. May our loving heavenly Father watch over his family, friends and colleagues and grant them peace during this stressful time.
