My condolences to the family . A great person to whom I knew personally and met him several times in United Indian school Abbasiya which was just opp to my house. My wife Late Mrs Ekta Deepak Kanar was teacher in his school for ten years and i found Mr Chandy very helpful and cooperative person who was always there to extend his help whenever required . May God bless his soul.
