Dr Nipulkumar was a true inspiration to all who knew him. Despite endless medical challenges (3 kidney transplants, numerous strokes) over 30yrs, he never complained once and was always the first in the queue for medical research. It did not stop him from living a normal life.

In addition to being a world leading mathematician with several formulas named after him, he was an accomplished dancer, painter, artist and built Indian temples all over the US although he had never been to India.

He was a great contributor to the local communities he lived in. Teaching maths, a keen Shishukunj member, running US submarine challenges and feeding the homeless to name a few from an endless list.

For all who know him, he shall be remembered with his motto of: ‘Be Good – Do Good’.

Om Shaanti, Shaanti Shaanti
