There are really no words. Chandra will be much missed as a scholar, a fierce critic, and a fabulous dining/drinking partner. As someone who only started working with Chandra over the last 3 or 4 years, I want more than anything else to note and pay tribute to her incredibly generous spirit. There are other great scholars out there, but no one more committed to both crossing disciplinary and intellectual borders while maintaining absolute academic integrity. And I absolutely do not know other scholars as willing to go out of their way to generously help the work of those lucky enough to cross her path. I was very lucky indeed in that respect, and so very sad at the loss. We are all lesser for that.
