Caesar Basu (1975–2018)

We, the undersigned, condole the demise of Caesar Basu on the afternoon of 31 March 2018 in a hospital in Kolkata. Caesar was diagnosed with lung cancer, which was already at an advanced stage when his treatment began. Caesar, a research scholar and an intellectual, meant many things to many people: mostly students, teachers, and activists among whom he cultivated deep friendships.

To us, the class of 2004 from master’s programme at various centres in Jawaharlal Nehru University, he will be remembered as a comrade, a teacher, and a mentor. Exceptionally erudite, humble, and well read, Caesar was a thoroughbred scholar in political philosophy and was admired by his teachers at the Centre for Political Studies.
