    Dear Subarna,

    My apologies for this seemingly out-of-the-blue message. I was on LinkedIn a few minutes ago when I came across a UWC-USA post honoring Hritik, and have just learned of his passing. Hritik was a wonderful, funny, genuine teacher and an...  more

    Dear Subarna,

    Living in your wada and sharing time with you and Hritik during my first project-week in Varanasi, I was able to observe the tenderness and love that you and Hritik share. There was a kindness in the way Hritik approach people; there was...  more

    Sir taught us at Welham Girls in Dehradun, India - the best girls private boarding school in India. The Sampats were a very welcome addition to the faculty and they brought a fresh and very relevant perspective. Always engaged, always getting us to do...  more

    Dear Subarna,
    It is with deepest sorrow and grief to learn about Hritik. Experiencing the aura of positivity, laughter, and passion that he was sharing with his students could truly be the one moment when I realized how strongly education can act as the...  more

    Dear Subarna,

    I am so emotional thinking about Hritik. He was such a gentle soul and the most amazing human being. I simply can't imagine how God can be so cruel? I am yet to come to terms with it. I still can't answer why? It makes me angry and...  more

    Dear Subarna, for me, you and Hritik are not the teatchers but the toon parents at UWC Dilijan. I will always remember the kind way you have taken care of my son. You both have a special place in our hearts.
  • Yanna Yanna
    Dear Hritik,
    Thank you so much. I am so lucky to have been your student. I started MUWCI without any intention of studying a stem subject, yet I'm a civil engineer now. I hope you know what a positive role you have played in my and many students' lives....  more

    Subarna, Please accept my heartfelt condolences! Hritik is one of the great teachers I have had the pleasure of learning from. I always remember him smiling or laughing either in class or around campus. May the Almighty grant you strength in these trying times.

  • Priscilla Lai
    Hritik will always be remembered as the kind, loving and caring advisor/teacher and father figure to many of us at MUWCI. Thank you very much for impacting my life, making a huge difference not only in my two years at MUWCI but for the rest of my life....  more
  • Peter Samaranayake
    Hritik has taught us all that: 'A body at rest remains at rest but a body in motion continues to move!" It is in that spirit that we should resolve to not remain at rest by being satisfied with the status quo but strive to continue to move higher...  more
    Subarna we cannot express our sorrow sufficiently or find the words to express our deepest condolences. We all have such wonderful memories of Hritik and we will never forget. He was an exceptional teacher and friend and he has touched so many lives....  more
  • Victoria Longhi
    Dear Hritik, even though I did not get to have you as a teacher then you were that elusive teacher on campus over whom my fellow peers would light up when they spoke about your lessons. Your classes had such an "air" around it that it (almost!)...  more

    Thank you for being a concerned and engaged Wada Parent, and a great teacher, during my time at MUWCI. You had a brilliant way of breaking down complex concepts in physics and explaining them so that anyone could understand. I will always...  more

    Hritik came to my UWC at a time when I was dangerously close to being disillusioned by the movement and its perceived effectiveness. His unexpected presence turned my classes from a mundane obligation into something to look forward to. He always left...  more

    I will hold you in my memory as I strive to emulate your balance between intellect, thoughtfulness, and good humor, both as an educator and as a human being. Thank you for the many meals together, for the conversations, and for your friendship.

    My thoughts are with you Mrs. Sampat.
  • Hanna Karnei
    I couldn't have wished for a better, kinder, and more caring house parent during my time at UWC Dilijan. Hritik never failed to cheer me up with his brilliant sense of humor. And I will always cherish the moments spent at Hritik and Subarna's apartment,...  more

    Hritik was always a man of few words. But wise words. There was something very special and unique about him, right from childhood. A voracious reader, an animal lover, a foodie, nature lover, a poet, a great swimmer, a very gentle and determined...  more

    Subarna, I am truly sorry for your loss. Hritik never taught me, albeit the mealtimes I spent with you both made it easy to understand why he was so beloved- his brilliant wit always put a smile on my face. And that is only a fraction of the positivity...  more

  • Cristyn  Hughes
    My memories of Hritik are nothing but positive. Sharp wit and knowing smirks whenever his wife did something particularly badass. An amazing teacher and a core part of my UWC experience so far. Humour and wit and intelligence and compassion. Brilliant.

    "A teacher affects eternity; one can never tell where his influence stops," wrote Adams. For no one was this truer than Hritik. Hritik lives on.
    He spoke little, did much, and when he spoke he said it like it was. All of us members of the UWC...  more
