This is a very sad news. Not only was he my classmate but also my room mate for over a year when we were graduate students at Northwestern. I send my condolences. He was a wonderful person.

I first met Arun, when he took my Watercolor class 2 years ago. After the class session, Arun kept in touch with me and he had decided to take private lessons to learn how to draw. Arun was an excellent art student and very enthusiastic about learning different techniques in creating art. We became friends and I enjoyed his hospitality and friendship. He even came to support me at a many Middle Eastern dance performance at the Williamsburg library. He

Arun, we will miss you. I wish I had conveyed to you the true appreciation I feel for your friendship. Your kindness, warmth, hospitality, and intellect will sincerely be missed.

I only knew Arun casually at the SALT group and their he was well liked by all with whom he came in contact. He was always smiling and certainly was a favorite of quite a few of our female members. A pleasant, friendly man who will be missed by those of us whose fortune was to have him as a friend.

I knew Arun through the meet-up group here in town. He was always so inviting, thoughtfully including many people to his parties, get-togethers, or other activities. He was inquisitive and truly interested in cultures other than his own, although he was more than willingly to share his culture with others.

Some people are described as knowing the price of everything and the value of nothing. That was not Arun. Arun knew the value of those things most important in life... family, friends, building and maintaining relationships, living his life to the fullest each and every day.
I have never met a more gentle, kind and loving soul on this journey. Arun embodied all I know to be good in the world. Though demonstrably brilliant, he was also amazingly free of ego.

I can't count the number of parties, BBQ's, outings I've attended over the past few years where Arun was a guest as well. He was always fun to be around. He came to my home about a month ago for a wine tasting party. He didn't stay long because he had to get back to his son (such a family man), but now, I am so glad I got to spend that time with him, I wanted to have a

Regarding this picture... I can't remember where we were (a restaurant somewhere in W'burg), but whoever was taking it kept telling us to get closer because we weren't all in the shot, so finally, we all just scrunched our heads together. Dean was standing and leaning over, and Arun and I were sitting. The way the photo is cropped, you wouldn't know quite how we did that. ;)
I met Arun in the Williamsburg Singles Meetup group a few years back.

Arun was one of the first people I met when I came to JLab as a post-doc in 1998. He spent a lot of time showing me his beautiful (e,e'p) data, and we had a lot of happy dicsussions about possible experiments. It has always been a great pleasure to see Arun, when returning to JLab or at meetings. I will miss him.
