Chairperson of the department Prof DrKaberi Gayen thanked them for opening the eyes of the students to allow them see the world in a new light.
A humble man, Prof Ali looked back at his career and thanked his students. "I learned more from them while teaching," he said.
One of his former students from his first batch remembered him as a scholar with outstanding knowledge and "one of the best teachers we've ever had."
Teachers, former and current students of the department, along with well-wishers, attended the event.
