"While I was shocked and shaken by this loss when I heart the news, I am comforted by reading about what a momentous life Adhikary Uncle had.  I am also comforted because I know his tremendous legacy and wonderful spirit will be carried on by his amazing son and daughter in law, who truly showered him with love and affection, especially during his time in Philadelphia.  

A contagious smile, positive spirit, a genuine eart and humble personality...these are the qualities that I think of when I think about Adhikary Uncle.  I met him for the first time at Maha and Joy's wedding in India, and his warm smile and peacefu presence were contagious.  He was so happy and proud of his children that day, and I'll never forget the light in his eye when he looked at his son and beautiful new daughter in law.  Our lives weave us in such varying directions--sometimes closer or further from others.  What in the end matters is the impact you leave on people during the times of closeness.  This page serves as a reflection of what a bright light Uncle was in the lives of so many and how deeply his light will be missed.  

My heart aches for Maha and Joy.  I send you my prayers and wish you strength.  I hope you are able to take some solace in know that he is never far from you and his blessings will always be with you."

"Dear All,

I got the sad news this evening that Adhikary Sahab is not with us any more .
This is extremely unfortunate and unbearable loss as Dr Adhikary was the biggest guide to everyone at  NDIM.

He was not just the founder director but the second arm of the NDIM after my father.

I remember the day when we went to his house in the DU to take him on board in 1996. Once he said ‘yes’ ,  his commitment took over everything else.

He laid a very strong foundation of NDIM which is the reason of its reckoning today.

His involvement in the Journal " Review of Professional Management - A Journal of New Delhi Institute of Management" as its Editor till the last day and his efforts to raise  quality of  the Journal  have been commendable. Members of  editorial Board,  readers and contributors will also miss his academic guidance.

We feel blessed that he continued to guide the NDIM for almost 19 years till his last days.
May God take him in His fold.
We at NDIM can never get into his big shoes.

NDIM  is deeply indebted  to Dr. Adhikary for everything that he did for the Institute.

VM Bansal.
New Delhi Institute of Management"
