Mr. R. Natarajan spent five and a half years at the Institute. He left a lasting impression not only on the Institute but also on all those he worked with as well. His involvement with IIT Madras went beyond fulfilling his administrative duties. The relationships he maintained with the staff and students were warm and friendly. He was known to have handled any problem presented to him with a lively personal concern. He brought infectious enthusiasm to bear on the organization of all the Gymkhana activities. His unique personality was cherished by all who he encountered. A farewell party was organised in his honour in April 1965.
