Sanjay Sangvai

Sanjay Sangvai is no more. Two decades of his work with the Narmada Bachao Andolan and the National Alliance of People’s Movements, as well as his contributions through organisations like Abhivyakti and the National Centre for Advocacy Studies (NCAS) have shown that Sanjay was an activist with unique capacities and a rare commitment. Along with being a grassroots activist, he was also a journalist, a writer and a litterateur. He passed away at the age of 48 due to serious ailments of the heart and lungs on May 29, at around 7 am.

A dialogue with Sanjay always left one impressed with his knowledge of several political trends, the particular histories of nation states and civil societies and his comprehensive vision of development. He was well versed with the philosophies of Gandhi, Phule, Ambedkar, Lohia and Marx, and was also comfortable with the Greek and Roman classics as well as Sufi thought. At the same time, he wore his intelligence and knowledge lightly.
