It is with deep sadness that Transparent Chennai announces the sudden death of one of our researchers, Mr. S. P. Srinivasan, known to his friends as ‘Cheenu’ or ‘Srini.’ Srini was a thoughtful and respected researcher, adept both in the field and in the office. During his time working with us, Srini was a substantial contributor to two projects, one on understanding access to housing finance in low-income communities in Chennai, and one on monitoring ward level conditions. He was beloved in the office, and will be deeply missed by the Transparent Chennai team and our local partners with whom he worked, as well as by the wider IFMR community.
There will be a memorial service held by his family and friends on Saturday, November 10th at 5:30 pm at No. 3, Anna Street, Makkaram Thottam, Kolathur, Chennai- 99 (landmark: Backside Don Bosco Matric school -Srinivasanagar). For more information please feel free to call Nithya V. Raman at 99400.31205.
