Tremendously sorry to hear of the tragic death of Chandra, with whom I had worked closely in New York fifteen or so years ago within the International Peace Academy (today the International Peace Institute), much to my benefit.
She was a tremendously supportive colleague to us all, and her work excited and galvanized us all. It continued to do so during subsequent years as she developed further her impressive academic career.
Most recently, I had spent a lovely evening with her in London after a lively exchange with faculty and students at UEL. Typically, she was full of fun.
She will be enormously missed by her former colleagues and her students.
With deep regret,
