I am still struggling to accept the sad news of Prof Chandra’s passing. Prof Chandra was a great mentor and supervisor on my PhD. She also became a great friend over the years. The more I got to know her the more she came to symbolise empathy and resilience in an increasingly harsh world. Her passion for justice and equality was always inspiring and exceptional. Her intelligence, hard work and scholarship encouraged me to always do more and better in my own professional and academic life. I had so many things and questions I wanted to discuss with her along the exciting career path that she helped set me upon. I will surely miss her. But I will always honor her memory through hard work on some of the issues we both held dear. May she rest well.
