P N Mari Bhat (1951-2007)

P N Mari Bhat (1951-2007)

P N Mari Bhat, senior professor and director of the International Institute for Population Sciences, Mumbai, passed away suddenly following a massive cardiac arrest on July 30, 2007. He was 56 years old. Mari, as he was fondly called by his friends and colleagues, will be greatly missed.

I had, with admiration, seen Mari grow professionally over the past two and half decades. We cultivated our friendship and our mutual respect and affection flowered. He used to discuss his researches with me before sending them for publication. He was gifted with a razor sharp intellect, sound analytical skills and a candid but lucid way of penning down his findings. He never compromised with his conclusions based on his analysis and defended them all through.
