I'm so sorry to have missed it, Neeta. Only heard the news today, in conversation with a friend.

I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Jamsheed Kanga (1931-2020), a fine civil servant (IAS 1956), as robustly engaged with rural Maharashtra's problems as he was a visionary and productive contributor to the debates over Bombay's urban design and civic infrastructure.

I return to this incredible piece of music every couple of months, and come away energised each time: Steve Reich , 'Music for 18 Musicians' (1974-1976; released 1978), performed here by the Eighth Blackbird ensemble .
