On 15th March we lost our evergreen Past President (1964-65) Shri Arvindbhai H. Dalal. He was also Past President (1989-90) of ICAI, our alma mater. A thorough and dedicated professional, he was always ready to guide and provide a helping hand to all professionals and juniors and mentored many. I had occasion to speak to him on call many times and he was very informed and keen to know everything, including new publications, joining BCAS events on a digital platform and so on. The March issue of the BCAJ published a photograph from 1951-52 in which he could be seen and I had occasion to speak to him for the last time – today I recall the saying, ‘coincidence means only a connection that's not seen’.
