“ I was so saddened at the loss of Ali and my condolences to Ann and family. Ali was a special person. Visionary yet modest, inclusive and caring.
My memories of Ali will be of a great Dean who collaboratively developed a new vision and instilled purpose and momentum for his Faculty. He was a gracious man who could lead the way to the best restaurants in Delhi despite the lack of signage and traffic chaos. I wish I could have spent more time in his presence, especially after reading all of the tributes and understanding the impact he had on so many people. He will be greatly missed. ”
