We are deeply saddened by the sudden demise of our dear friend Dr. Sankaraganesh Jonna to covid-19. Ganesh was a research scholar of Computer Science and Engineering of IIT Kharagpur who defended his thesis very recently.
Ganesh had a true dedication to perform good quality research. He was a kind hearted, soft-spoken, hardworking, helpful and friendly person. Above all he was a good human being. When we last spoke to him about his future plans, he mentioned that he has a few papers under pipeline, and he also expressed that he is applying to top universities for post-doctoral positions.
Please have a look into his Google scholar profile:
Ganesh is from a lower-middle class family, and his parents were totally dependent on his income for their living. After his sudden demise, they are in a huge financial crisis. In these COVID days, they are working for daily wages to support themselves. In this tragic moment, we stand together in offering our heartfelt condolences to his family.
We request all generous and kind people to come forward and generously contribute to help Ganesh's parents in this unprecedented time.
