A well deserved honour

When it was announced that Srinivasa S.R. Varadhan was the winner of the Abel Prize 2007, the director of Courant Institute Leslie Greengard was one the first to congratulate Raghu as he is known among friends and colleagues.
"It is wonderful to hear that Raghu Varadhan has been awarded the 2007 Abel Prize. His work is deep, beautiful, and incredibly important, having laid the foundation for much of modern probability theory. Raghu is also one of those rare individuals who works tirelessly on behalf of his students, on behalf of all his colleagues at Courant and NYU, and on behalf of the international mathematics community."
