    We first met Jim when working at the International School up the hill from him at Kodaikanal - I went down to see what work he was doing, and to see if the students from the school could get involved. He was, as ever, welcoming, intensely busy, amusing; and very amused (rightly) at the idea that the students could be useful in any way. He said he rarely got to Kodaikanal. So we were a little surprised when he turned up at our door a couple of months later - we hadn't even said where we lived, but he was so well connected to so many people in the whole region that it must have been trivial for him to find us. We offered tea, and asked in a casual conversational way what brought him up to Kodai. " h, always good to get away sometimes" he said. Pause. "And some chap has accused me of murder, so now's a good time I think. This is nice cake." Laconic, understated, extraordinary - in his usual casual way he somehow incidentally managed to involve our extended family in his life and work without even really noticing, and such a gift that has been to all of us.
