October 14, 1998

Dear Professor Amartya Sen,

It is with a sense of pride and joy that I have received the news of the conferment on you of the Nobel Prize for Economics, l998.

Please accept my sincerest felicitations in sending which, I know, all fellow-Indians and fellow-economists from India would like to join.

Your contributions to the study of human development and the causes of poverty and inequality in the world are marked by originality and are in tune with India's intellectual tradition. You have brought to bear upon the science of economics a compassion for the ordinary human being and a vision of an egalitarian world society.

Once again my deeply felt felicitations on this well-merited honour and best wishes for many more years of purposeful activity and achievements.

Yours sincerely,


(K.R. Narayanan)
