T V Antony IAS, my wife Sunu’s brother, passed away in Chennai this afternoon. My wife was with him in the hospital at the time.

A Padmabhushan awardee, T V Antony was Chief Secretary of Tamil Nadu State and had the distinction of serving under both the governments of opposing political parties.

Another notable distinction is that his father T A Varghese ICS was also the Chief Secretary of the State.

T V Antony was a specialist in population control and was advising several state governments on the subject.

The funeral is scheduled for Monday, January 27 in Chennai.

RIP brother-in-law.

  1. Please tell Sunu that I am deeply sad that she lost such a precious brother. I lost a sister two years ago and found that it was much harder than losing a parent. We expect to outlive our parents, I think, but not our siblings.
