Hundreds of people on Tuesday held a vigil at UC Berkeley campus in California to remember Indian student Tarishi Jain, who was killed along with 22 others in the gruesome Dhaka terror attack.
Jain's friends from her dorm, classes and campus groups of UC Berkeley remembered her as a young woman who was sweet, generous, altruistic and intelligent.
UC Berkeley Chancellor Nick Dirks and several of Jain's friends spoke next to an enlarged photograph of the smiling Jain, a large bouquet of white flowers and Indian, American, and Bangladeshi flags.
"We have lost a precious member of our community, and we are so much the poorer because of it," Dirk said.
Her friends and teachers appealed to the crowd to remember her for all her accomplishments and friendships, not for her brutal death.
