About 14 years back, in the early days of Pallium India in Trivandrum, we had the occasion to treat Ms Rajeswary for advanced cancer with pain. From her sick-bed she continued to look after her philanthropic activities.
The day after her death, her husband Mr Vijayakumaran Nair got “Rajeswari Foundation” registered, primarily as a palliative care institution, but also providing primary care to the people in the locality. It grew to a successful institution providing inpatient care and long term care later.
It was Pallium India’s privilege to be Rajeswari Foundation’s fellow-traveler.
At 1.30 AM on 02 July 2020, Vijayakumaran Nair succumbed to advanced cancer with only weeks between diagnosis and demise. Our condolences to his daughters Malini and Shalini and to their families.
