Letter: Raj was a 'ray of sunshine'

letter to the editor

There are only a handful of people who have the ability to imprint so deeply on others through even the briefest of interactions. Raj was one of these people. In the 30 minutes or so that I got to know him a bit better while he graciously drove me to the airport a few weeks ago, I knew that I was in the presence of a humble genius. As no words are adequate enough for me to describe his generosity or smiling nature, all I can say is how glad I am that my last memories of Duke this semester were with a ray of sunshine. My love and prayers go out to Raj and his loved ones.
