remembers Dennis Hudson with love and affection. He was not just our chief
mentor but also a very dear friend. We had first connected with him when
we invited him to present a paper at our "Andal Today" conference in 2001.
He could not travel that year in the wake of 9/11 and sent his paper. Then
in March 2002 he came to India and gave us a talk on " Dating of the Bhagavatha
Purana". We were smitten every since and have had an incredibly fulfilling
learning time with him whenever he came to Chennai. In 2002 December we
organized a trip to Vaikunta Perumal temple with Dennis Hudson as a guide
without realizing it was Vaikunta Ekadasi day. However, Dennis navigated
our group of over seventyfive in the mob of over thousands with the finesse
of a captain which in all walks of life he was. His generosity of spirit
and openness to share was a hallmark in the world of academia.
