On 27th december 2002, M.D. Vasanth Raj, former professor of Jainology
 Prakrits of Mysore University, passed away. He not only was one of the
 scholars of Jainism, he also was a devout Jain himself, whose
character was
 exemplary to all. Those who had the fortune of meeting him, will
 him as a kind, gentle and modest man, who never refused anyone who
came to
 him for help or advice. Our thoughts go out to his family.
