It is with great sadness we inform you of sudden demise of Mr. Dharmender Srivastava (our beloved Dharmendra-ji), on 31st August, 2020, due to brain hemorrhage. He was working as the Supervisor of cleaning staff on daily wage basis from 2004 in the BSBE department. He will be deeply missed by his colleagues, faculty members, staff and past/present students of BSBE Department for his kindness and sincerity. Dhramendra-ji will be remembered for his polite nature and dedication towards his service to BSBE department.
Dharmendra-ji is survived by his parents, wife and three young daughters who are yet to complete their education. His sudden departure and loss of the primary bread earner of the family may force her daughters to discontinue their studies. Thus, it is an appeal to the present and past members of BSBE department as well as the larger IIT Kanpur community to please come forward and donate as per your ability to help the family of Dharmendra-ji. For this purpose, we have established “Dharmendra Srivastava Memorial Fund”.
