Tribute to Prof. Puri
Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi
Three years ago, our
association with Sir was initiated at IIT, Delhi as students of M.Sc at the Department
of Mathematics. He was a committed teacher who had remarkable knowledge of his
subject. He had a wonderful quality of motivating students and bringing out the
best in them. He was highly admired by students for imparting them education as
well as human values. He was gifted with a special quality of developing
personal relation with each student. Whenever students approached him with
their problems, he would listen to them patiently and would help them out in
the best possible manner.
As a person, Sir was
very optimistic and strongly believed in the motto of “WORK IS WORSHIP”. Such
was his persona that he would leave an impression on whosoever came in contact with
him. Though he possessed leadership quality, his humility and politeness was
appreciable. Although he appeared to be a very serious person, he had a very
good sense of humor.
encouraged us to do quality research work and inspired us to be good human
beings. He believed that one should do hard work without thinking about the
results. Also he believed that one should lead life positively and never give
up. Although he is no more physically, but is always present in our minds.
Coming in contact with him was like a blessing to us. We hope to follow his
