Professor Kaiyan Homi Kaikobad: A Tribute to a Great Professor and a Wonderful Human Being
On July 1, 2010, Professor Kaiyan Homi Kaikobad, formerly at Durham University and most recently at Brunel University, passed away leaving an irreplaceable void. Not only was he a great Professor of International Law who made significant contributions and who shared his passion, knowledge and wisdom in the field with everyone around him, but he was also a Humanist, a reliable Friend, a Gentleman, and a wonderful Human Being.
As his students, we enjoyed his continuous support and encouragement throughout the years, his humbleness, and the broadness of his spirit. However, his premature death has not left us an opportunity to show him our appreciation and admiration, and how much he influenced our lives in so many positive ways.
Professor Kaikobad’s example will always inspire us and will always enlighten our hearts. He will be greatly missed but he will certainly not be forgotten.
