Sruti mourns the passing away of N. Sankar, Chairman of The Sruti Foundation, on Sunday 17 April in Chennai, after a brief illness. He was 76.
A few years after the demise of Sruti’s founder & editor-in-chief N. Pattabhi Raman, when Sruti was in need of a stabilizing hand, N. Sankar – Chairman of the renowned Sanmar Group – came forward to take The Sruti Foundation under his wing in 2006. Under his leadership, Sruti received a fresh impetus with the recasting of the Sruti Foundation, infusion of new professional expertise, and the Sruti office moving into the Sanmar premises, with contemporary facilities in technology and connectivity.
Integrity and Excellence have been our motto, and Sruti will continue to uphold these values which were top priority for N. Sankar. Sruti will miss his eminent presence. The Sruti team offers its heartfelt condolences to the members of the bereaved family.
