An honest man. A dead man

Manju Nathan is dead.

An alumni of IIM Lucknow, Nathan joined the Indian Oil Corporation where his job was to check for the adulteration of petrol in petrol pumps in Uttar Pradesh, and report dealers who were messing with the fuel. The dealers, apparently, used bribery and intimidation to prevent their licenses being revoked. It was a dangerous job.

Well, now he's dead. Gaurav Sabnis, a friend of Manju's from his IIM days, has a moving post on the man here: "Bye, Machan."

Another Satyendra Dubey? Sure, just one difference: the media doesn't seem to care.
