I was orphaned when I was just seven years old, never felt the pinch then, for I was too young to realise what parents love was; I struggled to medical college, and here I found a father in my beloved Guru Dr. Cooper. My parents gave me birth, Dr. Cooper gave me life.

This is how he marched along his like on a straight path, life a saint, a true son of this soil. He never amassed wealth, for he gave away more than he received. A learned and enchanting teacher, to teach whatever he had gatheted over long years of sincere, hard, honest work and experience were his finest hours of life. Professionally he reached dizzy heights nationally and internationally. He was the Asian representative at the International Council of ophthalmology right till his death.

These institutions will always be proud that such a man served on its staff for over 30 years. He truely put the ophthalmic department of K.E.M. Hospital on international map. Work of outstanding merit have been produced and just to mention one-his work on lens proteins will remain as a land mark in man's quest to find cause of cataract.

A magnetic personality, an original thinker, an astute diagnostician, a wonderful surgeon and above all a man with a golden heart has breathed his last. His life reminds me of Stephen Grellet's words, I quoto :-

'I shall pass through this world but once, any good things that I can do to our fellow human beings let me do it now, let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass through this way again' I unquote, Dr. Cooper has finished his journey and in doing so has lived by every word of the quotation.

May his noble soul rest in everlasting peace. A men.
