    B Raman, one of RAW founders, passes away

    [​IMG]

    Bahukutumbi Raman, 77, one of the founders of Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), passed away in Chennai on Sunday evening after a prolonged fight with cancer.

    One of India's foremost security experts and often described as an asset by the Indian intelligence community, Raman was a former additional secretary with the Cabinet Secretariat. He was also the director of the Institute for Topical Studies, Chennai.

    Author of several books, Raman was a critic of India's foreign policy. He used to write on security, counter-terrorism and military issues of India and South Asia. A firm believer of Nehru-Gandhi rule, Raman often proposed it as a solution to many of India's political uncertainties and socio-economic woes.

    Till his end, Raman was active on micro-blogging site Twitter where he used to talk about his fight with cancer. His last tweet from SORBONNE75 was, "Hanumanji willing, shd be back home coming Saturday."

    One of the few officers who witnessed the creation of RAW in 1968 by RN Kao, his analysis on Pakistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar and China have been an asset to the intelligence community. In his memoir Kaoboys of Research and Analysis Wing: Down Memory Lane, he talked about his days in the agency.
