Prof Swaminathan: Deep sorrow at the premature demise of Y C Deveshwar
On behalf of the Trustees, Staff and Scholars of MSSRF, I am writing this to express our deep sorrow at the premature demise of Y C Deveshwar. He was a mentor and advisor to the Foundation and to me he was a personal friend and guide. We will miss his genius and commitment. I share the sorrow and pray for the peace of the departed soul.
M S Swaminathan Research Foundation (MSSRF) established in 1988 is a not-for-profit trust. MSSRF was envisioned and founded by Professor M S Swaminathan, agriculture scientist with proceeds from the First World Food Prize that he received in 1987.
