"One of the Very Best"

"...I have been teaching at The Wharton School since 1984. I am writing to convey a few brief thoughts to you about Anuj on this tragic occasion. He was a student in my class on leadership and teamwork, yet I was privileged to have gotten to know Anuj outside of class as well. He served on a small committee of students who worked with me this year to recruit guest speakers to visit our class.

Anuj and I shared a few lunches during which we did our planning, and it was during these delightful times that I had the pleasure of experiencing Anuj’s remarkable personality, beyond the consistently excellent contributions he made in our class sessions. He was extremely bright, intellectually engaging, humorous yet humble, warm yet clear-headed. I thoroughly enjoyed being with him, and he made the work we had to do very easy with his flexible, creative, can-do approach.

I have gotten to know thousands of Wharton MBA students over the years, and I can honestly say that Anuj stands out in my memory as one of the very best Wharton has ever seen. I was so deeply saddened by the news of his passing for not only will I personally miss him; more importantly, he was truly an ideal citizen of our community. You have my most sincere condolences at this very painful time."

We all pray to ALMIGHTY GOD to bear this most unfortunate loss and pray that ALMIGHTY GOD gives you all, enough strength to sustain this untimely separation from your dearest Exceptionally Brilliant Son.

The latest posting of our beloved Anuj brings tears to my eyes. The entry of our dear Anuj winning the colouring contest at age 7 and 8 left me speechless. As a mother now, I understand just how very precious that is; we live and breathe for our children. Without them we are lost. You were the very best mother to our beloved Anuj and I know he loved you more than anything and that's why he worked so hard to bring you here.

We all are now living with a broken heart. The pain of not being with our beloved Anuj grows deeper each day as reality sinks in. The only comfort we can find is with loving each other and knowing that our beloved Anuj is the one that taught us about love.
