Dipak was a wonderful man whom I was very privileged to know, if even for a short time. He and his valuable research works will be remembered for a very long time to come.

We were struck with a very deep sadness at this news. Dipak-da was a very close friend to us. He was a very helpful person. He used to go beyond his means to help others. May God rest his soul and give comfort to Sabita-di.
