As you all know from mails and from my facebook posts, I am bereft of one of my earliest students.
Imsong had just accepted a position in IIT Guwahati and while transiting through Bangalore, was taken
seriously ill and in septic shock from which he never came out. His publications can be found on INSPIRE.
A recent tribute to him is
here. I have never seen
such an outpouring of grief, solidarity and wishes as I have seen from responses to the facebook post, emails,
phone calls to me and to my other students and his well-wishers. It is best to honour him by emulating his
sincerity, simplicity and honesty. The tragedy is that in all honesty, Imsong had real child-like simplicity.
I repeat below words from our close collaborator Dr. Irinel Caprini:
``I can't belive that Imsong is no longer in this world... It's a pity
that such a good, kind, honest and clever boy died so soon and in such
tragic circumstances. '' I can hardly put it better myself.
