IPS deeply regrets the passing away of its Board of Trustees member Inder Kumar Gujral on 30 November 2012. A politician and a diplomat, he served as India’s 12th Prime Minister as well as Minister of Foreign Affairs and other governmental and diplomatic offices.

Gujral will be remembered best as a politician who strongly believed in the role of the media as a pillar of democratic politics. Throughout his stints as India’s Prime Minister, Foreign Minister and Information and Broadcasting Minister, Gujral remained personally accessible to journalists.

As a member of the international Board of Trustees of IPS he took a keen interest in its functioning and gave valuable contributions to our work.

He is survived by his two sons, Naresh and Vishal, and by his brother Satish Gujral, a prominent painter and architect. His wife Sheila died in 2011.
