Dr P. Lakshminarasimhan : 11 posts by 9 authors.
This is to inform with profound grief about the sad and sudden demise of Dr P. Lakshminarasimhan,  former Joint Director (Scientist E), of BSI, Western Regional Center, Pune. It appears he briefly suffered with high fever and breathing problem, but could not get a ventilator in any hospital in Pune and breathed his last at around 02.30 hrs. this morning.
Dr Lakshminarasimhan joined the Botanical Survey of India at its Andaman Nicobar Regional Center, Port Blair in early 1990s as Scientist B. Later he served at BSI, Pune, Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew (as Indian Botanical Liaison Officer), Central National Herbarium, Howrah and Western Regional Center, Pune in different capacities and finally retired on superannuation as Scientist E on 31st August, 2019 after a very very distinguished carrier. He was a very critical researcher and a very good plant taxonomist. Helpful attitude, sincerity, dynamism at the place of work, ability to take quick decisions and humility was the hallmark of his persona. As Indian Botanical Liaison Officer at RBG, Kew, he
helped the taxonomists not only within and out side BSI in India but also those in other parts of the Indian subcontinent. He helped and endeared hundreds of young and practicing plant taxonomists through a series of nomenclature workshops that he so meticulously convened in different parts of the country, the last one being as recent as January this year at Shillong. In his death the BSI and entire taxonomist fraternity of the country has lost a good taxonomist, a dependable colleague, an able administrator and a fine human being. 
At this hour of grief I convey my heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family and pray the God to
grant sadgati to the departed soul. 


You expressed it so well about Dr P Lakshminarasimhan. I wish to share few things:
It was in the first week of 1985 I visited BSI Pune for consultation of herbarium and collection of Utricularia specimens in Northern Western Ghats. Dr Karthikeyan sir introduced me to another Research Scholar who was working on Nasik district flora for his PhD. In between almost 35 years have gone. Dr Narasimhan (that’s how BSI people call him) has not changed a bit, either in his focus, humility or attitude. He has been the same, but for producing excellent works in Taxonomy, training dedicated students, and arranging workshops in the area of nomenclature. Hundreds of youngsters have benefitted from these workshops. Occasional SMS, mail or WhatsApp I used to receive from him. It will be either related to our welfare or related to the subject.  I had so many interactions with him and his students. They are all still fresh in my memory!
In 1985, he took me to his house and around Pune. He was always there with me whenever I visited Pune. Even a couple of years ago, when he organized a workshop, I visited his place. The most memorable was when we were returning from Kalyani University after IAAT meeting. Happened to be my Birthday. That dinner was at his home in Kolkata. I still remember the hospitality extended by him and his family. Ms Sweta (his daughter) was still in school.
I always believed that his best was yet to come. Whatever he published, he did amidst all the administrative duties and pressures. I thought he would come out with much more! Maybe he left it for others. Hope the Almighty gives all the strength to his family to come out of this untimely loss and grief.
As I see, everyone is missing him and will continue to miss him. We all love him for what he was, a beautiful soul.

I had some mail exchanges and he was always helpful, though I hardly knew him. That shows a character of a great man.
May his soul rest in peace.


It is a very sad news. We have lost a great taxonomist. My condolences to his bereaved family. May his soul rest in peace.


It is a great loss to the flora world . My deep condolences to the bereaved family. May his soul rest in eternal peace.


My sincere heartfelt condolences. May his soul RIP.


Its very sad news. I too had interacted with Dr P. Lakshminarasimhan on few occasions and i found him very humble and helpful person.
May his soul rest in peace. 

This is a shocking news and a great loss to taxonomic botany..

He was one of the leading experts of this time, and this sudden demise has created a huge gap..
I hope the taxonomists trained by him carry forward his legacy..
I wish for strength to the bereaved family.. 
May the departed soul rest in peace..


May his noble soul rest in peace.

When ever he was coming from Pune he was bringing Chewda for us. Untimely demise is shocking. He will be remembered as a renowned Scientist and a good human being always helping all.


It is a piece of sad news. May his soul lie in peace.
