VIKRAMA SARABHAI

Successor to Bhabha

Dr. Homi Bhabha, Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission, died in 1966. He was a very capable man. Many thought no one in India could replace him. In this depressing atmosphere they found in Vikram Sarabhai the man to continue Bhabha's work at the Atomic Energy Commission. He did his work quite ably and showed his capacity to direct and continue Successfully the work of the Commission.

On 29th December 1971, Sarabhai was in Trivandrum to guide the work at the, Rocket Launching Station, Thumba. He was staying in a hotel there. He talked with every one as usual and went to bed. He never got up again. The man who at birth was blessed by Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth, but who worshipped Saraswathi, the Goddess of Learning, died when he was busy with his research. He was then 52.

Vikram Sarabhai had married the famous dancer Mrinalini Swaminathan in 1942. They had a son, Karthikeya and adaughter, Mallika.
