|Sivaprakash Rangarajan (Team Lead/ ML 9 ) was our colleague working in the CWE team for the last 2+ years. He was leading our design team across industries in client workshops, sustainability initiatives, GTIC and CCC.|
An unassuming and charming individual, Siva was a silent strong performer and will be missed by many - well beyond those who have benefited from his illustrious and acclaimed designs across the firm. In all that he did, Siva brought a level of energy, drive, and optimism that was the envy of many.
Siva was working from Krishnagiri and was looking after his wife and mother in law who were COVID positive and put his own health at the back burner as a result of this. He developed a severe cough in the last week and even though his RT-PCR report was negative, the CT scan showed that the infection had affected his lungs. Siva had already spent a lot of his savings on the treatment for his wife and mother in law and was particular that any further hospital treatment for himself should be in an Accenture empaneled hospital with cashless transactions as a service.
Unfortunately on Saturday morning, things took a turn for the worse. Immediately, our team worked with Siva and his family to help with this transition of empaneled hospitals in Hosur. He was being shifted to the hospital in an ambulance but never made it to Hosur unfortunately. He suffered a major cardiac arrest in the ambulance and could not be resuscitated.
Right from the time Siva’s family was admitted in hospital, we have been providing as much assistance as possible to his family. Our team and HR are in touch with Siva and then his family, helping them get through administrative (e.g. hospital admin, bills) and getting the insurance money and processes completed swiftly.
He is survived by his wife Jayshree and daughter Manthikaa (aged 12).
Siva - a caring and beloved family man, a cherished colleague and a friend-- will be missed by many, but never will he be forgotten by those who were fortunate enough to have known him
