Comrade S K Mishra


COMRADE Shrikant Mishra is now no more among us. He had been suffering from Parkinson’s disease for the last few years and breathed he last on June 23. He was 79.


Comrade S K Mishra, who had been actively associated with the editorial department of People’s Democracy, was born at Ferozabad (Uttar Pradesh) in July 1933. He received his education from Lucknow University and did his PhD in Economic from Agra University. He retired from Delhi University after a long stint in teaching, when he played an active role in the Left oriented teachers movement. Then he joined the editorial department of People’s Democracy in 2001.


Dr Mishra was one of the rare economists who have equal control over English and Hindi, and he wrote several highly appreciated and warmly received books of economic in both languages.     


The People’s Democracy/Loklahar family pays its tearful homage to this veteran member and conveys its heartfelt condolences to his wife, daughter and other family members.
