Abstract: M N Srinivas, the world famous social anthropologist turned 80 on 16th November 1996.I am neither a social anthropologist nor have been his student in any formal sense; so I am not in a position to assess critically his academic contributions. I see him as a very special human being who has enriched my life in many ways and taught me many things without perhaps being aware of what I have gained from him. His personal qualities are what I shall talk about, hopefully without outraging his well-known sense of modesty and certainly without using my professional expertise to psychoanalyse him in any way!
