Tribute in Palo Alto Newspaper

The Palo Alto Weekly published a tribute to Anuj in its Transitions section today. It is a beautiful retelling of his life and makes it clear how much he accomplished in such a short time.

When Anuj was visiting the Bay Area during spring break at Wharton, he, Hema and I went to the Los Altos Coffee Shop for brunch. He had already eaten but went with us anyway, just to hang out. Anuj had let his hair grow out longer than usual and Hema made a funny comment about it.

We talked about a lot of different things. Anuj asked us about our lives and talked about how his plans for the summer were coming together. He was excited with the variety of internship opportunities he had. However he wasnt sure about what he would do during the 4-5 weeks between when school ended and his internship began. He was deciding between working for a consulting firm in NYC, trying to get a VC gig in Silicon Valley or traveling. In the end, he settled on the VC gig even though I tried to convince him to travel.

I remember, it took us forever to get our food. So the waitress comp'ed us our drinks. When we were settling the bill, Anuj mentioned that we should all still give her a decent tip despite the poor service because she probably paid for the drinks out of her pocket. Typical Anuj - always thinking of things from the other person's perspective.

It ended up being one of the last meals we had together. I miss how he could make an otherwise unmemorable experience such a pleasant memory through his warm smile and quiet conversation.

Anuj, Kapil and I went to only one basketball game together. It was Stanford vs. Yale at Maples Pavillion. Stanford won. We had decent, but not great, seats near one of the baskets. It was Dec. 30, 2002. I was visiting my parents from New York, Anuj was working at Kana, and Kapil was home from USC for winter break. It wasnt a great game, but I remember we had a lot of fun. It was one of the first times the three of us got a chance to do something together.
