INDAPRYAL expresses deep sorrow at the sad demise of Prof. Ritoo Malati Jerath who passed away on November 20, 2017. Prof. Jerath had been associated with Russian Studies since 1976 when she joined the 5-year integrated course in Russian at the Centre of Russian Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. In 1990 she joined the Centre as Faculty, and from 2014-2016 she was the Chairperson of the Centre of Russian Studies.
Prof. Jerath was a very enigmatic person, had strong views and convictions and always held fast to her democratic ideals. She was much admired by her colleagues and students for her caring approach and helpful nature. Prof. Jerath will be deeply missed. May peace be with her!
