K.N.Raj, who passed away on Wednesday, was a brilliant economist, institution-builder, excellent teacher, resourceful guide and friendly colleague with profound personal integrity. He inspired generations of young economists and colleagues both at the Delhi School of Economics and the CDS (Centre for Development Studies), Thiruvananthapuram. The great reputation these two institutions currently enjoy is due in no small measure to the inspiring leadership he provided in their early days and beyond.
