Who would have imagined that so many of us would be looking into our collections for pictures of Ravi because he would not be there with us so suddenly? I've had to do that too and here are some pictures of his I have from a trip he made to Nagaland with many of us in Kalpavriksh.
My main and close association with Ravi was in the context of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, where I had the opportunity of spending some great time with him. I first met him a decade ago, and can't believe there will be no more of those occasions. Here are also some pictures of the species in the islands that he worked with closely, species which we understand much better today because of his painstaking and path-breaking work.
