This is an incredibly sad day for all BITSians. Our dear Diro is no more. His incredible vision built BITS Pilani into a global institution, created the expansion, lead to a culture that was so warm and welcoming whenever we all went back, always protected the diversity of BITS and the role of women, lead to three new campuses, and rallied all of BITSAA to the BITSConnect cause, which ignited the fire and passion of the alumni community towards BITS. He will indeed be remembered for so much that he did. He said to me. I am retired but I will always be "Diro". Indeed he will. We miss him. Anupendra
