Requiem for a Teacher

He was a dear teacher at JU. Two decades ago, at the Integrated Building of JU engineering, housing motley labs, clubs and Production Engineering at the ground floor, he was the man who ran the show at Production Engg. department, under titular custodianship of the eminent Dr. Amitabha Bhattacharya. He used to be too busy with administration even then. A fine teacher, with JU-IIM lineage, he couldn't often come prepared for a class. And made the class even more enjoyable. A big man with a small voice. He would fix everybody's problems. Loved by all.
Years after I left college, he went on to join BIT Mesra and went on to greater and greater prominence in the academic circles. The obits all talk about his career at BIT, none of his prior background.
Go in peace, Sanat-da.
