Laila Fathi

I am writing to you after hearing the passing of Chandra. I was one of her students and she supervised my PhD when she worked at SOAS up until 2016.

I am very shocked by the news. She was a great teacher. Without her, I would not have been able to finish my studies, let alone to believe what I have achieved.

She was a really impressive professor and marked me by both her intelligence and humanity.

I live in Morocco now work in an NGO and teach at a university. Her work and personality still influence me today. I  do hope her family and friends will find comfort. 

She will be missed.
