The Advisory Board and Board of Trustees of Netaji Subhash Bose-INA Trust sadly records their condolences on the sad and untimely demise of their fellow Trustee and friend, Shri Devi Prasad Tripathi, fondly known as DPT, yesterday morning in Delhi. Shri Tripathi, a well known Political Leader and a former MP, was the go-to person for the Trust for over a decade, not only as a Trustee but adviser and many times crisis manager. His warm personality was appreciated by all of us. The Trust will feel his loss immensely at all times and will miss his guiding hand and benevolence. Shri Tripathi was a well-known political personality. He had friends and associates across the political spectrum in India and abroad. As an intellectual giant was a source of guidance and advice and his expertise in poetry and literature was a great source of motivation. His sharp intellect and incisive views on national matters were extremely helpful in keeping the Trust in line with greater national interest. His departure from the scene will be long felt as a loss not only to the Trust but to all of us, Members and associates of the Trust. We will miss you DPT.
