    Dr. Shah was a great man. He recommended people for doing their best. He was a mentor of mine and a guru. As he was from the Jain clan I am grateful for knowing him as my cultural lineage of the Vishwakarmans were the ones who built temples and art under Jain principles of science and technology. May he rest in peace and may his soul flourish this world.
