Rajam S. Nair Endowment

Dr Ajith Nair and his wife Jaya Nair have instituted “Rajam S Nair Endowment” in the sacred memory of their loving mother, the late Rajam S Nair, to improve awareness about the need for palliative care in India.

Rajam Nair was born in Haripad, Kerala in 1947. She died of Leukemia on 01 September 2014. She was an exceptional person with such love and sympathy for her fellow human beings that she always left pleasant memories everywhere she went.

“Death does not scare me,” she used to say. “Pain does. I prefer death to pain.”
