Obituary – Dr. Daruwalla & Dr. Nagarkatti

Teachers are a special kind,
In heart and mind and soul.
They’ve touched our lives in countless ways
Shared knowledge, both new and old.
In Xavier’s they spent many years
Amid students… that gave them pleasure,
And as we now say ‘Rest in Peace’,
Their memory we’ll always treasure!
