He was known to us as a physicist and teacher par excellence, as a fiercely honest and outspoken academician who stood for the values of academics, as a colleague, and above all, as a personal friend to many of us. He was a true teacher at heart: even during his illness, he was full of plans to teach subjects that he had not taught earlier.

He spent the last two-and-half years of his life as Professor Emeritus at the Centre. Almost till the end, he was engaged in collaborative research with people at the Centre. He was a constant source of inspiration and support to all of us.

Below is a collection of personal reminiscences about Professor Panat.
