One of my earliest memories is leaving the Lahiri's house in my family's brown station wagon with Queen of Hearts playing on the radio. You will be missed Mr. Lahiri.

I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of Chitta. I worked with him at Uniroyal Chemical and always enjoyed his sense of humor and appreciated his knowledge of rubber technology. Condolences to Mechthild and the rest of his family.
