Dilip Bhai had been our mentor and role model , when we joined JNU . We were feeling intimidated, awed and unsecured , coming from small town of Bihar in Delhi . He taught us to feel confident and face the English rattling students with substance and elan . I remember his words , ‘ Bring quality and excellence to your learning, form and expression will follow automatically’ . He taught us how to draw strength from being together and following one’s heart in choosing personal and professional life . We miss you badly, Dilip Bhai . We shall always cherish your guidance and fond memories.
