Not only did Dr. Raj achieve technical eminence during his career, but he was also a leader of great warmth and understanding who inspired a new generation of welding engineers and researchers. Dr. Raj served on the Board of Directors of the IIW and as President 2011–2014. With boundless energy and a thirst for knowledge, he contributed actively to Technical and other IIW Working Units, particularly in the areas of welding technology and non-destructive evaluation of components. His leadership of IIW during his term of office as President was distinguished by his humility, natural goodness and sense of equity - and above all by his joy of living and interacting with people.
