First paragraph (this article has no abstract)

Krishna Dronamraju was the legendary population geneticist JBS Haldane's last student at the end of Haldane's life, when Haldane was working and teaching in India. Since then Dronamraju has made something of a career as a Haldane biographer, historian and nostalgist. He has written articles and books on Haldane's work and career, mixing the professional with the personal. This is another of that kind. It is a short, clearly written and interesting read.
