PBT Mourns Sudden Death of a Strong Supporter and Legal Crusader for Healthcare Reform, Senior Advocate Mr. M.N. Krishnamani

Mr. M.N. Krishnamani, renowned Sr. Advocate and four times president of the Supreme Court Bar Association has passed away from sudden cardiac failure earlier this week in Bangalore. Apart from his numerous noteworthy legal performances in the Supreme Court and High Courts over the past almost four decades, Mr. Krishnamani was given the prestigious Padmashree Award last year for his outstanding contribution to the society. He has been a long-standing legal counsel for the PBT and appeared in many historic public interest litigations (PILs) over the past 17 years that have already brought major changes toward improving the standard of healthcare and medical education in India. Mr. Krishnamani also appeared on behalf of many hapless victims of medical negligence including the historic case of Anuradha Saha. It will be difficult to find any attorney in India who is more efficient and knowledgable in cases involving “medical negligence” and Constitution of India. Over the years, Mr. Krishnamani also became a mentor and close friend of PBT president, Dr. Kunal Saha. He visited Dr. Saha in USA on several occasions including a trip last summer (see picture of Mr. Krishnamani and Dr. Saha below at Disney World in Florida). PBT and ordinary people of India will deeply miss the unselfish contribution by the most kind and truly devoted senior advocate and social reformer, Mr. M.N. Krishnamani.

    It was very sad news to us. A couple of years ago, Dr. Kunal Saha brought him in Houston, Texas and arranged for long discussion on legal system in India . I met with him in that time. He was very good speaker. I pray to God that his soul rest in peace.

    I wish there are more in the legal profession who keep up the legacy of Sr.Advocate Krishnamani.Only unselfish socially oriented patriots can arrest the falling standards of professional ethics iin our country.
    May god bestow piece on the Departed Soul of late Krishnamani.

    Deeply shocked hearing the sad demise of Sr. Advocate M. N. Krishnamani on 18th of this month. I had the opportunity of meeting him last occasion when he came to Kolkata in one of our meetings. He was a vast learned man and very senior reputed Advocate in the Supreme Court. He was a friend, philosopher and guide of PBT. He represented our PBT cases very effectively before the Supreme Court bringing success. Let us pray to God for his Soul to rest in Peace!

    May the departed soul rest in eternal peace. I did not interact with him but surely his good karma will stand him in good stead.
