He will be missed

This is truly the end of an important era in Indian Science. Obaid's conviction in his research and his steely determination were most admirable. But for him and people who were trained with him, many Indian students like me would have never discovered the joys of learning fly genetics and the importance of scientific endeavor in our lives and society. He leaves a legacy that is here to stay and grow. I will fondly remember many a conversations with him in the NCBS cafeteria. His humility and respect for others was something to aspire for. A true gentleman scientist of our times! I wish his family and friends courage and solace. His legacy will always be cherished.
