Dr.Y.S.Rajasekhara Reddy , Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh who was killed in a helicopter crash on 2nd Sept. was of course a politician. His government was notoriously corrupt. However, certain facts about him stand out.
1) He had his schooling in the Besant Theosophical High School run by Kalakshetra Foundation. This should have had atleast some impact on his value system.
2) He was a broadminded Christian equally at home in Bethlehem and Tirumala, as noted by The Hindu.
3) He was a medical doctor and he always empathised with the poor.
We have lost an assertive and confident politician.
