I have always had an insatiable interest in the intricate innermost workings of his mind. After all, he left an indelible impression on me. Instead of the customary outpouring of information, he spoke with inventiveness, only after having incubated his thoughts for a while. My imagination ignited with the inexhaustible supply of idiosyncratic illustrations and ingenious examples he provided; all of which, further invigorated our intellectual intimacy. He was scrupulous yet never irreverent or irresponsible when imparting interesting and inspirational ideas. His iridescent spirit inebriated my mind and intoxicated my soul. I am incredibly lucky to have known him.
