I am deeply saddened to be notified of the death of my dear professor, friend and translator Janusz Krzyżowski. He was the Polish translator of Uzbek classical poets such as Alisher Navoiy and Bobur. My prayers and thoughts are with his spouse Gabriella, his children and friends like Surender Bhutani. I know our dearest friends do not go far, we’ll just meet them later. I wish I could give him the biggest hug right now. RIP, my dear proffesor!
