P.W. Anderson (1923-2020), was one of the greatest scientists of the second half of the last century. I got introduced to Anderson's works during my Ph.D. and PDF days at IISc (1970-78). I frequented Anderson garden, even before he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1977. Thanks to friends and happenings at IISc, Univ of Madras and ICTP, I had a wonderful opportunity to work with the gardener himself, from 1984 till recently. I will give a glimpse of Anderson as a person and his contributions to condensed matter physics and beyond.
