was the President of the IASS from 1994–2006 and one of the Vice Presidents
of the IASS from 2006 till his passing away on 18 December 2018.

The award in his honour was welcomed by all the members of the Board,
Regional Directors and Consultative Committee of the IASS.

Details were announced on the IASS website in August 2018 for the award, to
be coupled with each World Sanskrit Conference. Since the WSC in Canberra
had to be postponed because of the troubled Covid time, it is being
announced again.
