Story

With profound grief, we share that our brother Chandan Kumar is no more. We lost him to Covid-19.  The entire 2005 batch(Xth) and 2007 batch(XIIth) of RKMV Deoghar bids adieu to our dear friend and brother.

We were fortunate to know him from Vidyapith where he got admission in 1999 and studied till class 12th. He was a gentle, pure, and brave soul, loved by all. He was very active in sports- a champion footballer. He was the 'Fire Drill Commander' of our batch. We fondly remember his glasses which we used as magnifying glass innumerable times for fun. He was a fun-loving, ever-smiling person, always ready to help everyone.

Chandan joined New Delhi-based Climate Connect in 2013 as an economist and quickly rose up the ranks to boast a handful of job titles and crucial responsibilities, including lead economist, carbon product head, director of strategic business units, and Chief Operating Officer. He led a team of machine learning engineers and analysts whose forecasting algorithms helped manage over 40 GW of power distribution assets and over 6.5 GW of renewable energy generation. His professional accomplishments are unmatched for his age.

It's a great loss for all of us. We want to commemorate such an amazing human being with a scholarship in his name in his school. This will be a merit-cum-means scholarship given every year. We target to raise Rs.5 Lakhs. This will provide an assistance of Rs 25,000(assuming a 5% interest rate) to a needy meritorious student every year. We call our fellow brothers to generously contribute to this cause.
