KV Ramanathan is no more

Mr KV Ramanathan, who took over as Editor-in-Chief of Sruti at a most difficult juncture, when founder editor Dr N Pattabhi Raman died in December 2003, passed away on 14th November at his Valmiki Nagar, Tiruvanmiyur residence after a brief illness. He was 87. 

A distinguished bureaucrat of the Indian Administrative Service, KVR was for a while Resident Editor of The Indian Express, his first stint as a journalist. Respected for his integrity and encyclopaedic knowledge in a variety of subjects, he was a keen music enthusiast with a phenomenal memory and keen sense of history. He led the Sruti team for four years and retired at the ripe old age of 79. He is survived by his wife Ganga, a son, two daughters and their families.
